Moored boats are arranged in such a way that it looks like they are branches of a tree. 

Photographer Azim Khan Ronnie managed to capture these moored boats, which were shaped in such a way that it reminded him of branches on a tree. The boats were moored on the Shitalakshya River in Narayanganj, Bangladesh and are used to carry passengers from one side of the river to the other. 

Azim said “A boatman cannot carry passengers across the river whenever he wishes. They must maintain an order, controlled using ticket numbers.  After completing one trip across the river, the boat moves to the back of the queue and gets a new number. When his number is called up again, only then can he carry passengers across.”<br />
