Texture Gallery: Stone, Walls, Brick

These photos have been created by Smashing Magazine readers in our Smashing Texture Contest. What can you do with them? You can use all textures for both private and commercial projects for free, without any restrictions whatsoever. However, you are not allowed to offer these files for download; please respect the interests of over 300 participants of our contest. Please also consider the license information attached to the .zip-archives you download from our server. When it comes to usage of textures, different photographers may have different opinions and intentions.

Some .zip-archives also contain further images of the same photographer. The file size of .zip-archives is between 1 and 15 Mb (depending on image resolution) which makes over 700 Mb space storage. This is also a reason why we have decided to not offer all textures in one single archive. It is very likely that due to huge amount of data and manual work some links contain errors — please inform us about them. And sorry for inconvenience.

One of my favorite things to do is find something beautiful out of objects that people wouldn’t even care to look. I came across this interesting texture and vibrant colors as I was photographing old railroad cars. This texture is from a corner of a step onto one of the railroad cars that is not longer in service.

I made this shot at the "Alhambra" in Granada, Spain. It’s an arabic building with a hundreds of details in it. It was pretty hard to get a shot like this, ’cause there are loads of tourists.
You might have to zoom in a bit to get all the details.
