Flute Friday

I have decided to forgo the obvious flute references.

The provenance  of this photo is unclear.  It is meant to be a vintage photo, but isn't.  It is often attributed to an artist named Vittorio Carvelli, but it is clear that he has simply used this image as the basis for a highly photoshopped digital image.  There are other pictures out there from this sitting, and most of them refer to the model as "Paul,"  so Paul, here's to you, and photographer,  nice job.

UPDATE!  I believe these photos are the work of a Flickr user from the UK who goes by the handle of Rayandbee.  He says these photos were taken in 1982, which means they are vintage, but not nearly as vintage as some believe.

Amazing that you found those other images. I've only ever seen that top picture believing it to be much older. I suppose the sepia tones add on the years to a vintage picture.

Ian, especially if they're under your bedsheets!

These photos are striking no matter their provenance. The model is beautiful, the photographer talented, and Vera awesome for sharing them.
