A 'Whole Beautiful Queen' on the stoops of historic Prospect Lefferts Gardens

Have you ever heard the expression, "God doesn't give with both hands?" It ain't true ya'll! Behold my sister: smart, empathetic, kind. To quote a young woman describing her on Facebook, "a whole beautiful queen." We were hanging out in my (now old) Brooklyn neighborhood (Prospect Lefferts Gardens) as the sun was starting to set, and I asked if she'd be up for me shooting a couple photographs of her. She was.
