this thread began as my own personal dumping ground for textures, but i've decided to let it become a public thread. feel free to post any interesting textures that you come across, whether they're from photograph's you've taken, or interesting scans, or even textures you created digitally.*
*if you wish to share a texture and it is not your own personal intellectual property, please gain permission to display the image here or hotlink to the site of origin. in any case, try to host it on a reliable image server, as unfortunately the attachment manager (as amazing as it is) doesnt allow for ridiculously large, hi-rez images. hopefully someday this will change with the advent of more storage space in the CA vaults, but until then we shall make do. all textures posted here are intended to be free to use, so do not post images here you would be unwilling for others to use. please PM me if/when you add your own updates so i can edit the thread title.
