This view clearly shows the curve in the left field stands and the relationship of the first row with the playing field (no overhang to speak of in left).
Inexplicable bright yellow baseball amid the trees.
The completed promenade
In addition to the Pro Shop facade, you can see more gravel being laid before the final plaza surface is poured.
Yes, TC is smiling.
Target HQ main entrance. Ballpark resemblance? (Inset.)
The original Candlestick Park
Looking toward the Farmer's Market site from the balcony of the 573 Club at TF
Wow! Looking good.
The Pohlads were loose. A-Rod looked, um, you decide.
Secret entrance exposed!
One of the sweetest sights of the day -- the Dome, and only through passing bus windows.
The service entrance area in left-center, now with bench seating
Serious home dugout work in progress.
You write the caption...
Wrigley Field. Paradise? Not from these seats.
Evidence of a food court behind the seating above the batter's eye
If you want, you can ask those folks how the game is going -- and even get a little bit of info from the big screen (Grandstand)

Scoreboard in profile against the skyline
This is the outside portion of the Metropolitan Club.
This guy at the Puckett atrium chef stand caught me taking the picture and said I should stop back later because he was "just getting started." I still don't know what he meant.

The right field overhang is in place, and the first base stands are starting to go in.
Signature elements. (And they wonder why we think the real trees look so small...)
The circulation ramp on Fifth Street is shaping up very quickly.
At left, across the tracks by that pile of dirt is where the Northstar commuter train platform will be built, and where Twins fans will apparently NOT be able to get a train after night games. (For reference, that's the Fifth Street bridge, with the ballpark site just beyond it. The east corner of Ford Centre is just visible at the right edge of the picture.)
