JoziFolk - images of everyday life in South Africa

I photographed this WW2-era Bofors anti-aircraft gun, a couple of years ago, after I came across it in the bush on the outskirts of town. Apparently it was on the grounds of what was once a MOTH Shell Hole but the buildings are long gone and the land was completely overgrown.
A week later mine management removed the gun and it was cut up for scrap. What a shame!
