Not sure what those supports are for -- probably stadia.
This is the last hope for so-called knot-hole views. I'm skeptical.
This is where the plaza meets First Avenue
A seating bowl comes into focus. Note that the netting has been installed on the foul pole. (Field Box)

These stairs will go up to the centerfield pavilion.
Looking the other direction, again from Ford Centre, you can see what's going on over the tracks. This will be a public promenade.
Looking back toward the ballpark from Third Avenue and Fifth Street. Again, the track configuration is now clearly visible.
Detail at Gate 6
Viewed from up Sixth Street (that's Target Center on the left), you can get an idea of how the connection is currently planned. As it stands now, the plaza will extend to that support pillar, from which a stairway will empty to the sidewalk below. If they get their wish, additional support structures will provide a walkway along Target Center which will gradually (without stairs) meet the sidewalk somewhere up near First Avenue.
Look closely at the overhang. You'll see the on the right it is flush with the fence, and then it sticks out farther and farther as you move toward center. More fun for Michael Cuddyer.
In the top of the 9th, the sun hit our backs and summer took one last long look.

Left field bench seating
Off-topic, but this gigantic, cool, retro sign is just across the street from S&CH. Why? I don't know. Might look nice on top of one of those municipal parking ramps...
For some inexplicable reason, a lot of the new parks being built these days feature grand staircases like this one.
Construction of the stands is moving from left to right in this image.
Bike parking available along Second Avenue

Location for automated ticket machines
Limestone still dominates the Seventh Street walkway from a pedestrian point of view. But brick take over as you move upward -- a concession to cost, no doubt.
Gate 29 escalators
Just lighted panels... *sigh*

Fun with section counting!
This is what passes for imagination at Miller Park -- they didn't even get the shape right! (Source: LP)
The sign reads, "Mortenson Radio Channels".
Here's a closer look.

Champion's Club moat (windows are found at the base of the limestone behind the seats -- not visible in this image)
A collection of support pillars for the left field pavilion.
Notice that the wooden-backed club seats are now covered by a green tarp for protection from the elements.
