The more time I spend at Coney Island, the more I fall under it's spell. It's not just the hypnotic lights as they spin around, during the day the commotion at the boardwalk balances the serenity of the waves as they hit the beach. It is vast with seemingly miles of seaside coast and cavernous with the alleys and cubbies in Astroland. It offers everything, sun, surf, people-watching, baseball, food, drink, rides, games. It is truly a place of amusement.
As it seems to be under constant threat of destruction, I decided to capture my favorite landmarks - first on film and then in needlepoint. This is the first stitched image. It is a counted cross-stitch hand sewn from one of my photos. Measuring 5"x7" it comes framed and be found in my Etsy store.
