Through the Lens of Brother Jesse: "My Hands. Your Braids. One"

I am always rolling through the Black neighborhoods of Houston, Texas looking for moments to capture. On this particular Saturday, I was riding through the streets of Third Ward and arrived at the historic SHAPE Community Center.

I saw this sister braiding outside on the park bench. The Sun was shining. Weather was perfect. Children playing. The brother was basking in the Sun as this sister was in deep concentration.

I call this one: "My Hands. Your Braids. One"

Photo taken in Black and White with my Canon Rebel XT.
