A banyan tree

banyantree

In Indian folklore ghosts tend to hang out around banyan trees. The spreading foliage is just the perfect hiding place for scores of ghosts; the drooping aerial roots provide access to unsuspecting passers by. Very often there is a platform banyan trees, like this one, where people could rest in the shade during the day. Surely there must be ghosts resting there at night. When dinner time came around and the grounds outside my flat were deserted I took my camera down to investigate. No luck. Maybe dinner time is too early too early for ghost spotting.

The saving grace is that I got a shot which I can enter into the dinnertime challenge from the Daily Post. A banyan tree is common enough that this also goes into Photrablogger’s Mundane Monday challenge. Narami’s textures challenge should be good for this shot too.
