Seating mound (seen from the B ramp)
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.
Path of quick escape.
The flowers don't have quite the fullness depicted in the original sketches (where they were positively overflowing), but they are quite lovely -- a great, subtle touch. And that's probably a very challenging place to grow anything.
From the ground beneath the troubled skyway.
One thing that the design disguises nicely is that the Pro Shop (and other key components) are actually built over lanes of freeway. That can clearly be seen here.

Site of the proposed new Atlanta Braves ballpark. Look familiar?
You write the caption...
That is pretty close... (Grandstand)
The view out Gate 6 "Oliva".
This was from January 19, 2007, when it looked like wonderful things might never happen here.
View from the batter's eye seats
Looking down what was Third Avenue, and will be a freeway entrance ramp beneath the outfield stands.
The windows have started going in.
Reverse view, now looking down Sixth toward the park. The Met Stadium flag pole will be right there!
The Target Field grass, it turns out, will be green. (This is a photo representing the concept of grass only. The actual Target Field grass apparently will not contain dirt patches, weeds, or dandelions. Imagine that -- if you can!)
Ben took this picture of me (carrying my mostly useless camera) and Twins rep Chris Iles down by the admin building

Looking north (toward Fifth Street and the LRT station).
Here's a detail from the above image, showing the LED strips up close.
I see an opportunity in this view for an Abbey Road-style promotional photo! Mauer, Morneau, Nathan and Cuddyer walking toward the ballpark. The only question: which one takes off his cleats?
A whole bunch of guys working on something.
The base of the old Met Stadium flagpole. (The plaque refers to the "Flame of Freedom" and not the origin of the pole.)
Directly above gate 6 "Oliva" on the Club level.
Working on the main concourse right about directly behind the plate.
This was actually taken from the top floor of the International Market Square.
With the engine behind us, we got a real sense of how fast we were going by looking out the front (back) window
