It's pretty easy to see right into the Twins dugout!
B ramp glimpse
This is the LRT bridge under construction as viewed from the east looking west. The ballpark facade would be at the left in this photo.
A whole bunch of guys working on something.
This is a good overview of the spot where the Northstar (bottom) and LRT (top) will intersect.
Note the speakers hanging beneath that deck
The connection from the corner of Seventh Street and Second Avenue. You can now see where the little grassy area and franchise history board will be (the triangular area in the foreground).
Hubert's remains the only sports bar within site of the Dome after 28 years of its existence. It's a cautionary tale.

Hardware in the window! (But why are there three trophies? 1924?)
This would be easy to miss, but I found it on a cart located directly behind the Batter's Eye seating on the upper concourse in center field.
Two signs visible from beyond the confines of the ballpark.
Seventh Street windows
This is the view from where the plaza will connect to the walkway on the west side of Target Center. This presumably aids traffic flow back to the A ramp, and perhaps to the skyway connection (though the doors to the skyway right there are typically exit only).
One more exterior view shows that, while the original look was attractive in a way, it seems to be a variation on the look of the Washington ballpark (albeit with a much more coherent collection of elements).

Since pictures of the ballpark are forbidden, perhaps you'll enjoy this shot of the lovely apple tree in my front yard.
Staging for the next section (Home Plate Box)
This is the left field pavilion in the original concept model. The restaurant pictured to its right has been moved, and the seating area has been extended at least one full section toward center.
