". . . the aura of John Mariucci remained in every single part of that arena.  It's still there."
-Herb Brooks, 1988

Reflection is my first creation.  Mariucci (Williams) Arena is where I learned to love the game of hockey.  I knew that after the 1992-93 season the arena would be remodeled and become the Sports Pavilion.  So in February of 1993 I took a series of photographs from my seat.  I wanted to have something to show the arena as it was.  For many years I had the photos taped together to make a panoramic picture.

Fast forward to 2002, finally computer software had progressed to the point where I could take the taped together photos, scan them and “stitch” them together to create the seamless panorama I had hoped for.  In 2005 I totally redid the picture and added the image of Gopher hockey legend John Mariucci.
