Construction of the stands is moving from left to right in this image.
A mysterious smile from within a very deep planter!
A mass of rebar and complicated cable runs ready for a pour.
The ballpark development area expanded by 1000 feet in each direction
Night games are much preferred by the players at Target Field. You can see why.
A truck is leaving the HERC plant. Here you can see the proximity to the promenade. For the record, the truck drove right by me and I smelled nothing...
This guy at the Puckett atrium chef stand caught me taking the picture and said I should stop back later because he was "just getting started." I still don't know what he meant.
Instrument of evil.
I have no idea what this is or does, but as gear goes, it's totally boss, man. (Attached to a railing just off of the Trap)
Supports for the little sections in the outfield.
Red is old Yankee Stadium. This diagram comes from FieldOfSchemes.com
The Polo Grounds (left) and Shibe Park (Connie Mack Stadium)
The seating bowl of Citizens Bank Park overlaid on the Target Field site
Playing surface dirt out there? Maybe. (click to enlarge)
Stairs down to Seventh Street now have the start of railings
Gate 29 escalators
This is the trapezoid (for lack of a better name) in right center. Be sure to notice section of seats just below the pavilion and above the fence (which I hadn't noticed before). For those who are interested, what looks like an old-style scoreboard is in fact a high-def video board which will look, at times, like an old-fashioned scoreboard.
This is an angle I have not used very much, from the top of the Fifth Street ramp. Because the wall is so tall (forget about watching a game from here for free -- OK, maybe with a step stool) I have to hold the camera up over my head and just snap, hoping I get something good. Here I did. This view then looks to the southwest.
Can you name that field? (Braemer Park, Edina)
The proposed wooden screen covering the circulation ramp on Fifth Street (at left is the equivalent screen on Seventh Street).
Two plazas in Spain. (Brad and I were pretending to steal coins from the fountain. We were all just so darn funny back in high school, eh?)

This looks south and shows the track configuration for Northstar. The platform shown is just a placeholder. To the best of my knowledge, concept drawings for this platform have not been released. Keep in mind, this is NOT part of the ballpark project. It is completely separate.
Dan Kenney provided this alternate shot of a walkway behind the view level
I will take a picture of just about anything.
The Hrbek gate is directly below. It's a lively place after a game.
This is where you will put out your butts -- I mean enjoy some pretty flowers.
