MPOTD: Shea at Citi

MPOTD: Shea at Citi

If you're not following @msimages on IG, you're cheating yourself. Marc is the Mets chief photographer, and has been with them since 1989.

Marc has a great eye and always seems to find unique angles for a different perspective of the game, park and atmosphere.

When Citi opened, a lot of fans felt that the park didn't feel very "Metsy". If you remember, the old HR Apple was hidden inside the Bullpen entrance, the outfield walls were black and not many reminders of the teams history were visible. Thankfully, they've since corrected that. 

What they did have right from the start was the top of the old scoreboard from Shea. It sits atop Shake Shack and Blue Smoke in the outfield overlooking the Flushing Bay. A lot of fans walk right past it without appreciating it's awesomeness, but those that know, seem to feel pretty connected to it.

The neon skyline definitely lends itself to some great photos, and this one from Marc is up there with the best.
