A sharp-eyed reader caught me trying to make the best of a bad situation with my SP-570UZ on Sunday afternoon
I took this because of the view reflected in the store windows. (The store is cool too.)
Louver samples on display.
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.
ATM-style ticket machines have appeared beneath the steps to the B ramp (you can also enter the B ramp directly by walking past the ticket machines)
Also warming things up are these planters.
At lower left are the seats I'm not going to use any time soon.
Here's a rack of lights being prepared for lifting into the canopy.
Justin Morneau, mobbed after a game-winning homer on June 9
Roll-up metal doors visible at right.

The Pohlads were loose. A-Rod looked, um, you decide.
Gate 29 Carew (note the walkway above open to the street where you can shout down at your lost friends to tell them where to meet you)
A view straight on of the Pro Shop area and ticket windows (just barely visible). The piers you see beneath the plaza are already almost completed (see final photo).
An early concept for St. Paul.
Desolate. Dirty. Mysterious. Expensive. Unlikely.
