Basie Allen

Basie is shown centered and cropped in the image. It is a bright, sunny day. They are wearing a knit top in yellow, green, red, and black alternating horizontal stripes; a yellow bandana around their head that is tied below their chin; and a reed sun hat. Behind them are white flowers, green foliage, and clear blue sky.
