Thanks, Judy and Andrew.

Andrew, I tried b/w, but it ended up flat. As for the fingers, so many days I'm all alone...and no model to use. So, no fingers.

I love this image! It takes me back in time to a friend who played the sax.
Fun times. As for the image, it's great
and I do love the tones and your
lighting looks perfect. Nice work!

Thank you, Beverly! It's my nephew's sax. He, but mostly his mother, were very surprised at how aged it was!

Hey Aunt Margie! That looks familiar to me. :-)

This photo is so good though. My mom told me I needed to clean the key pads, but if I did, it wouldn't have the aged look that it does.

You should always listen to you mother! (Although I never listened to your mother growing up.) I was happy it wasn't a shiny sax...added character!

...wait! This is only your first gold?!? Somehow in my mind, I'd already long ago associated you with "award winning"---it is so nice when reality finally catches up with our expectations and assumptions! Another congratulations, then, for your first gold!
