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?
There are some great banners on fencing down Target Way. I'm not sure just who sees them.
This looks like a Twins Pub, but is actually the scoreboard operations.
From the roof of the B ramp, you can see just how futile it will be to get a glimpse of the action.
Oh no! Beach ball! But click to enlarge so you can see the wide range of expressions on people's faces. (Photo by Jared Wieseler)
Love the LC!
Looking down Sixth Avenue toward the plaza
This view is from the roof of a warehouse which stood where the A ramp is today. The HERC is now located where the tracks turned north (toward the top).
Note reflected sunset (7:30 PM). Could be a worry...

At left, across the tracks by that pile of dirt is where the Northstar commuter train platform will be built, and where Twins fans will apparently NOT be able to get a train after night games. (For reference, that's the Fifth Street bridge, with the ballpark site just beyond it. The east corner of Ford Centre is just visible at the right edge of the picture.)
Door to the visitor's clubhouse.
Polo Grounds from the south
Perhaps these very bold, Hitchcockian birds picking at left-over popcorn and peanuts were portents of what was to come.
One of the many supports being built over the tracks.
Millers fans leaving Nicollet Park after a game in 1923, where a trolley was waiting. (Click to enlarge.)
Lots of self-portraits were taken here after the final out.
Another over-my-head shot
What has been actually built so far is only a tiny subset of this vision.
Also warming things up are these planters.
I don't know if the back side is also a test for materials, but it could be a hint of how the exposed steel supports will be finished. Or it could just be to hold up the stone.
TC caps everywhere! (Is that you?)
The electronic sign has been corrected (and never forget that ballpark is one word, not two)
Here is a close-up of those funny little islands of seats (HRP View).

Another B ramp glimpse (don't loiter here!)
Trampled, repaired, and re-trampled grass
The saddest event
This is a good overview of the spot where the Northstar (bottom) and LRT (top) will intersect.
