I don’t know this building’s historical name, but it was the original home of the St. Paul Rubber Company. Now it’s an artists cooperative.
Take a look at the photo on home page of the Lowertown Lofts. That apartment looks awesome, doesn’t it?
I walk across Ecolab’s courtyard a few times each week, and I usually glance up to check on one building’s reflection in the other. It’s fun to see how different the view looks from day to day.
After I uploaded this image to my computer, I was excited to see the slight drama in the blue sky and clouds above the top building and in the reflection of its windows. And then I remembered. Blast! I’m doing black and white for my 52 project!
I think the drama still comes through, don’t you think?
Even with the top of the dome and the Quadriga covered with scaffolding, it’s still incredibly beautiful. (Note the flag at half-staff in memory and honor of the victims of the shootings in Tucson.)
