Thank you... out of all the things I've done it seems strange that the DD's are both textures, but I'm very gratified by the success.

To Potential Commenters: If you don't know what this is, it's a stock photo, which can be used as a texture for photomanipulations and such. It got a DD because of it's size and detail, because there are few stock textures around that are this detailed.

To Artist: Great Job :D

To shorten what the previous person said, it's a stock photo texture from a building. You can use it for photomanipulations.

It's a tiny unreguarded detail from what is indubitably a World Heritage Site, the Botanical Gardens at Kew. The Palm House, of which this is one of the entrance steps, was designed by Decimus Burton who was famously inspired by the leaf structure and ribs of the giant Amazonian waterlily, examples of which are grown in the Victorian lily house as well as the new, more high tech Princess of Wales Conservatory.

Textures like this can be used in scenarios of games like "Tomb Raider" and "Uncharted".

At this stage there isn't anything to get except the material itself, a slab of limestone well over a century old on which millions of pairs of feet have trodden. In 'Gormenghast' [link] Mervyn Peake writes of 'footsteps of ancient ritual, worn ankle deep in stone'. This texture has been enhanced for depth of colour, contrast and graininess but otherwise unaltered. In this deviation [link] I have 'inverted' it for colour and tone and tweaked it a little.
