Banyan Tree

My office in Pune is located at a very strategic location, smack in between the Mental asylum and Pune Jail!!

 

However, the street along which these depressing institutions are situated is lined with some of the most magnificent banyan trees. The trees are ancient, and huge. Every tihme I pass that road, I wish I stay back a bit and sketch them.

Today I did exactly that. I stopped by this beautiful tree, which had a rickety old wooden door behind it, flanked by equally rickety stone wall. It was a perfect setting for a pen and ink sketch. I quickly drew out the scene is pencils, and took some photos with my cell cam. Then completed this after returning home.
