Hi, here is a photo of a Db piccolo part to "The Washington Post," that was copyrightedcirca 1900.

Theinstrument itself was made between 1896-1908. After 100 years both are starting to dilapidate gracefully. Looking forward to your comments.

That is one sweet shot flutelady. I can see the wear and tear on the piccolo and the aging of the music score. Now this is graceful aging at its finest.

Wow,

The aging lines on the flute show she's growing old gracefully. Harder to note on the music score since normally I'd use things like "dog ears" for that.

Thanks for sharing.

Although the composition for this image is not an original idea, it is still an excellent image. The wear on the keys really shows. The only clue (that I see) to the age of the music sheet is the color of the paper.

Very nice shot. Print it and frame it!

I love the shot the way it is Flutelady, but in response to Calr's comment, does this help make the music sheet look aged?

Selvin, Cal,

Thank you so muchfor your comments and suggestions. I agree more of the edges and"dog ears" would add to the composition.
