Free texture: Sandstone evil eye
Yesterday's Quebec City sunset photo managed to find some success. But it wasn't really "a photo with added texture", but rather an "overlay diptych", a blend of 2 equally important shots. One was a Quebec sunset photo, and this was the other.
This is a close-up of a small slab of sandstone being sold in Gifts from the Earth, a wonderful shop in Carrot Common on Danforth Ave in Toronto. I took it in May 2008 and uploaded later that month and dumped it in a few groups and sets. Since then, in just over a year, it garnered 27 views, 0 comments and 0 faves.
Almost nobody cared about my stuff on Flickr a year ago, and honestly, most of it wasn't that good. (Now it is better, but still not good enough). But I always liked this shot, and always thought it was one of my most under-rated items. For the shot yesterday I flipped, tweaked and twiddled, but here it is as originally uploaded.

You may use this image, even commercially, or alter it -- provided that you acknowlege me as its original creator, preferably with a link back to this photo page, or to my profile page, or to my Photostream. I would also appreciate it very much if you could leave a comment on the photo page (or the relevant set) with a link to the photo you used it in. This in turn may give me and others some good ideas, and keep the virtuous cycle spiraling upward. :-)
NOTE: If you actually want to use this as a texture, leave a comment below or just fave it. That way, if I can find a better version of this, I can give you a nudge when it is available.
