Embroidered Photographs

I search for subject matter that has elements of beauty surrounded by decay or neglect. The sections I designate as beauty are hand embroidered. The images become somewhat three dimensional with the thread raised from the surface of the paper asking to be touched. The photograph physically shows the beauty among otherwise neglected elements in our environment.
