Description:

There are a range of lichen species present, but primarily on two bricks in this photo. There are some yellow and green crustose species on the darker bricks, but on the rougher bricks which seem a different type are different species.
There are white, brown and orange/yellow crustose species and these are more abundant than those on the other bricks.

The nearest brick

looks like it may be calcium-rich. The yellow crusts may well be a mixture of Caloplaca species and the dark brown may be a Verrucaria, but closer and clearer photographs are needed.
