In spring we saw them in New York City's Madison Square Garden, capturing Rangers Stanley Cup playoff game.
Now in late summer, a trio of Instagram stars -- Brian DiFeo (@bridif), Anthony Danielle (@takinyerphoto) and Liz Eswein (@newyorkcity), who among them have almost 750,000 followers -- were given special access Thursday to NYC's USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center, thanks to Evian Water and the marketing firm MKG.
Using the hashtag #evianday and shared on the Evian Instagram feed (@evianwater), the three showed sights from the U.S. Open that few get to see, with a photographic eye few share. Here are some of our favorite pics from these experts:
@newyorkcity: good morning from the racquet stringing
room at #evianday! very cool to see these guys stringing
racquets for some amazing players like Sharapova.
@takinyerphoto: small crowd in the #media room at the
@usopentennis. @bridif @newyorkcity and I are sharing more
photos over on the @evianwater feed! #evianDay
@bridif: I was just on the practice courts
standing 5 feet away from Maria Sharapova!

so tiny from the top of Arthur Ashe Stadium.
