It's #africantuesday, April 22th!
Today we commemorate the genocide in Rwanda 20 years ago with the theme "*People of Africa #RememberingRwanda*". Post photos of the different peoples of Africa. Please keep the photos family and work viewing friendly. The photos must have been taken in Africa. If you post photos taken by other people, you must state so and state the author if possible.

Important: share your photos to "public" and circle +African Tuesday or else your photo will not be considered for one of the top 5 photos of the week (we cannot re-share it for the theme if you don’t - a Google+ requirement)

To submit your photos to the theme:
1. tag #AfricanTuesday " People of Africa #RememberingRwanda "
2. include the curator team ( +Morkel Erasmus , +Dick Whitlock and +Grobler du Preez ) so we can pick up on your posts easily.
The top 5 contributors will be added to the AfricanTuesday Top 5 circle and one of the top 5 photos will be the banner for the +African Tuesday  page for a week!

Story
Tagline
Nature and wildlife photographer - http://www.groblerdupreez.co.za
Introduction
I would describe myself as a documentary photographer more than anything else as I love to tell the story of what I have seen and experienced with photos. I especially love wildlife, nature and action photography, but I also do wedding photography. Worked for 32 years in Telecommunications, South Africa and Namibia

I am a follower of Jesus Christ and believe in the Bible, not because I was told by my parents to believe, but because I have experienced the love Jesus Christ in my own life.

Although I try to view all contents in my stream, I am primarily on Google+ to share my photos and learn from other photographers. I will not only circle other photographers, but will also circle anybody who regularly interacts with me on Google+.

Due to Google+ restrictions, I can only circle 5000 people, so if you want to be in my circles you should do the following:

1.    Show a photo of you in your profile, not your pet or something you are interested in.

2.    Tell more about you in your profile

3.    Show the city and country where you live in your profile.

4.    Do not post rude or profane comments or photos. It must be suitable for children to see.

5.    I will NOT respond to game requests. I might un-circle people who regularly post game and other requests.

 Due to the large number of notifications, I might miss some circle notifications. If I am supposed to know you and did not respond on you circling me, please drop me a personal post.

I uncircle all people and pages with no posts for the last 3 months.

As I have a hearing disability, I will not normally participate in hangouts.

I am co-curator of the #AfricanTuesday photographic theme together with +Morkel Erasmus and +Dick Whitlock
