    Be careful of scale size of the cracks and rocks in the cement. I would be sure to print out the photos to a scale close to that you are modeling. Can't wait to see what you get from the photos, it's a great idea.

      I have done a similar thing with a brick wall.You take a picture of a large brickwall. In a photo editing program you enlarge or shrink he photo so the brick are the same size as your scale brick . You can also add advertising signs use a blending tool to fade the advertising and use a laser printer and make a decal for a whole wall then cut out the window.I have done this when modeling HO scale. But would work for a concrete floor also you could enlarge or shrink the page to make the cracks smaller our use a blend tool to take out the crack.Great Idea though.
