I am trying to segment warped text lines found in photos taken from a page of a book (from the camera of a smartphone). This is meant as a preprocessing step before running OCR on them.

I have found two relevant papers on this:

The papers are too hard for me to implement, can anyone help? Similar methods to achieve the same result would also be great.

I want to select the staff lines as individual blobs in either of these images:

The staff lines have similar darker gray color than the rest of the image.

Is this possible?

Edit: The regions that I want to select are shown in this image (roughly, I selected them manually): It's ok if other blobs are getting selected too (I can filter them by their area afterwards).
