All three seating mounds
What are they hanging over there?
Nuts on Clark (a couple blocks north of Wrigley Field)
Gate 6 is quite large
A view into the park down Sixth Street from just beyond Hennepin. Note that one side of the street contains century-old, classic buildings -- structures which are likely to last another century or more. The other side, not so much. (Click the image to see what it looked like from exactly the same spot 97 years ago.)
More flowers, more pennants.
Footings for the Seventh Street walkway from the A ramp.
The gate has grown a row of sponsorship
I noticed this detail while taking the previous picture. I figure that it must be the VIP entrance from the surface parking lot. I don't think there is any parking inside the ballpark, so this entrance will likely be for suite-dwellers and other VIPs, though I can't say for sure whether players will enter here.
Stairs down to the sidewalk from the skywalk over Seventh
Ballpark magic: Infield materializes (click to enlarge)
On this day, George was handling fruits and veggies right inside gate 34.
In the top of the 9th, the sun hit our backs and summer took one last long look.

For those who have never seen it up close, that's what it looks like when steam comes out of the HERC plant.

Supports for the little sections in the outfield.
This is what passes for imagination at Miller Park -- they didn't even get the shape right! (Source: LP)
The Metrodome has sure been tarted up.
Looking back toward First Avenue
Touring the Rapid Park site (L-R: Commissioners Wade, Vekich, Sykora, Cramer, and tour guide Chuck Ballentine, source: RP)
I suppose that one day my son will graduate from Mrs. Fields to Hooters. At least he won't have to travel too far. *Shudder*
This appears to be the floor to the home dugout!
Integrating the administration building was really a great idea. Actually, there will be more things inside than just offices, but that will probably be some sweet space.
A spectacular golden hour
A close-up of the rooftop party deck.
