My Drogheda by Wayne Floyd

Part one of a two part series from one of our members – Wayne Floyd

_____________________________________________________________________

I have been a native of Drogheda for the past 42 years. I love the town, the people and what it has to offer. It was once said to me that Drogheda is the centre of the universe, and it totally is for me. Even with its familiar grey old buildings, they have stood the test of time and that only brings character to them. In the last ten to twelve years the town has undergone a massive change. Some would say for the better but for me it’s not the same. I wish they had made West street  pedestrian only and allowed more space for street furniture. I also wish we had a town square. It is a great town but like all growing towns, cracks begin to show, just my opinion. Here are a few photographs I have taken of the town. Taken with the camera on my phone. I love the square format again all my images have the same border and format. Please feel free to comment good or bad. Its always good to get feed back.

Thank you all, Wayne J Floyd.

Pic 1

This Image was taken with a Samsung S3. I used the App Vignette to place a border and change it from a colour image to black and white. I used a high contrast to get the blacks darker.

 

Lone man Drogheda Photographic society

This Image was taken with a Samsung S3. I used the App Vignette to place a border and change it from a colour image to black and white. I then rant it through Instagram and again changed the border. I felt that this image had to be taken to capture the loneliness I perceived as an onlooker. Its not that I felt sorry for him, more wondering ‘what he was thinking’.
I went to primary school with this man.

Pearse Park

This Image was taken with a Samsung S3. I used the App Vignette to place a border and change it from a colour image to black and white. I then ran it through Instagram, again I changed the border and also the Black and white to a filter called ‘sutro’. I decided last year that on the 28th of every month I would post a mini-series on one topic. Containing six photographs this is the first one of the series called ‘Pearse Park’ (must be said with a Drawda accent).

Town Centre

This Image was taken with a Samsung S3. I used the App Vignette to place a border and change it from a colour image to black and white. I then put it through the App Snapspeed, again I changed the border and added a out of focus filter to the edges. This is one of my many Street Photography images. This is a field of Photography which I like a lot, Street Photography has really grown since the introduction of mobile phone photography.

 

West Street
