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.
The angle on the main scoreboard from the Batter's Eye is surprisingly good -- acceptable, at least.
I will take a picture of just about anything.
Just one lane of traffic and a couple of feet between the fence in right-center and the wall of the parking ramp!
Looking through the transit hub
A little higher angle shows how the two stations are close to one another but distinctly separate. The oval, glass-enclosed area is the entrance from the Northstar platform below into the ballpark. The LRT platform is comparable to the other stations along that route.
This view looks up Fifth Street toward downtown and shows how the LRT tracks sort of snuggle up to the ballpark.
Work has begun on the plaza, and the activity has started to impact I-394 traffic.
Compare this picture, from the open house in March, with the one above and you'll see that some furniture reconfiguration has taken place.
The view from the corner of Ford Centre. (Feel free to tie up your boats here.)
The pouring is taking place at the very bottom of this photo.
That is pretty close... (Grandstand)
The dessert carts came out earlier, and looked even better than last year.
Section 139, Row 8
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.

An ice cream salad cone -- er, Walk-a-Taco
Approach in the A ramp to the skywalk over Seventh
This view, also from the same warehouse roof, shows the newly-rebuilt viaduct on North Seventh Street.
A skyway-level view down Seventh Street.
That is the gun-metal gray wall of The Stadium just beyond the elevated tracks.

This is the staircase (ramp?) leading up to the trapezoid. Nice flagpole too. You'll be able to find me and Ben McEvers at the base of that flagpole on opening day in 2010!
This is where chain link is being replaced with fencing which matches the plaza
From last week, you can see the piers taking shape. I believe that the front row, visible here as just forms and reinforcing rods, is the front edge of the plaza.

In case you don't know, that's Earl Battey.
Steel meets concrete, with the last rays of sun visible through the suite and concourse openings at left.
