High atop the bluffs of the East St Paul neighborhood, Metro State University. While the University was founded in 1971, this fabulous building was built about fifteen years ago from what I can recall. Since I've started this Twin Cities photo blog, I've always wanted to photograph this building because of the large pains of glass. Unfortunately, when I was there on the spot trying to find a great location to shoot from, all I could find was very large and established trees blocking my view. This was plan B and I'm quite pleased with the results except for cutting off the tops of the flags. However, if I stepped any further back, I would have been standing in the busy traffic.
I believe if you take the Bruce Vento Trail from the trailhead at E.7th & Payne, as it loops around to the Seventh Street Improvement Arches, you'll find yourself looking right up at New Main.
