2011 Streak Day 272 (Sun Oct 2nd): The morning after

2011 Streak Day 272 (Sun Oct 2nd): Walk 3 miles, Time 1hr, Weather hot and sunny

This is a picture from early morning. 
Fallowfields is where manchester University has its halls of residence and the area probably has as high a concentration of  students as anywhere in the country. On weekend evenings students tend to go out and there is much drinking and eating of takeaways
The following morning you can both see the detritus and know why seagull manage to flourish in urban environments. As the sun rose both they and pigeons were out feasting on the left over food.
A walk at this time feels strangely eerie but I saw a contrast to show how all students are not the same.  On the one hand there was a couple, who  I would guess were returning after a long night but on the other hand there were a group of three lads getting their bikes ready for a day ride. They were the extremes, in between the others were probably still sleeping.
