The Story behind the Textures

There’s an old dilapidated building that I pass by regularly around where I live. I’ve always been curious as to why it wasn’t being renovated or torn down. I mean, it’s just there. No fence. Just some misspelled signs hanging on rusty nails that say, "No trespasing" or "Kip out", which naturally I ignored (because I don’t know what "kip out" means).

One day, I had enough it; I decided that I needed to see what was inside the building.

With no regard for my safety or the cleanliness of my new sneakers, I decided to park the car and walk inside. To my astonishment, there were no broken crack pipes or homeless people inside. There was, however, a rather strong smell. I examined it further and noticed that the concrete was showing signs of water damage. Well, I’ll let your imagination come to its own conclusion – but you and I know what the source of this smell came form.  As I looked down—fighting my gag reflex (and the urge to breathe) —I did what any normal human being would do when standing on a piece of concrete lovingly decorated by benevolent drunks who obviously have an appreciation for modern art: I took pictures.

Below, you will find some grungy textures that came out of this gag fest. You’re welcome.
