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.
