7:32 PM Glare begins at about the left field foul pole.
Dome, what have you taken from us?
This is a good overview of the spot where the Northstar (bottom) and LRT (top) will intersect.

The reverse angle shows that the signage will only partially obscure views from the top of the ramp. The wall is pretty high up there, so you'll need something to stand on, but it appears that this is one of the so-called "knotholes".
They help create a psychological safe area along the plaza edge, and help you forget that cars are zipping by directly beneath you.

B ramp improvements are finally becoming usable. The doors lead to the plaza beneath the skyway steps.
This is what it looked like during the first open house in March.
One of the sweetest sights of the day -- the Dome, and only through passing bus windows.
I think AP is in there somewhere...
Steps, skyway, and plaza intersect.
Work on one of the side panels
Very nice Admin glass.
Some baseball legends (and Ron Coomer)
Roll-up metal doors visible at right.
At the end of the balcony you can see down the promenade.

Freight trains run in very close proximity (Jerry Bell was standing at my left elbow when I took this picture)
Viewed from the sidewalk on Seventh Street. No skyway infringement needed.
A few weeks ago there were sand volleyball courts here. When the park opens, this will be surface parking. Maybe one day there will be something more interesting built on top of that parking...
Up there is where I plan to buy a lot of hot dogs. You can see the vending areas developing rather quickly around the completed portion of the upper concourse.

This is a slightly blurry view of the pavilion in center. It has a quirky shape, but one which is completely consistent with the overall ballpark design. Nice work there. You can also get a glimpse of the greenery which will rise above the fences.
