An Afternoon in Corby
I went out for a ride about on my bike the other day, and took my camera along.
The photographs you see on this site were all taken over about an hour and a half, and
most of them are from the Kingswood Housing Estate in Corby, Northamptonshire. All the
people volunteered to be photographed and placed on this site; they are locals who were curious
about what I was up to. The pictures were taken with a Casio QV-7000SX and the only image
processing I have done is to convert them to greyscale and, in a couple of cases, to adjust the
brightness and contrast. The town did the rest to itself.
My name is Mark Kelly and I have lived in Corby pretty much all my life. I send a fair amount of my
time playing about with my computer, either trying to make pretty things, stumbling around the internet,
or trying to figure out why on earth it just did that when I clearly instructed it to do this.
I also love Linda, but you probably knew that already.

Image processing was by The GIMP

. If you have anything to do with any of this
excellent free software you have my thanks. Great Job.
