  1. This mornings sunrise was simply glorious down on the docks in #hobart, watching the light dance and ripple across the harbour and into the massive Dutch #tallships2013. If you're in Hobart tomorrow, @instatassie are hosting an #instameet to photograph and explore the tall ships. Meeting at MAC1 at 10am, we'll wander through the ships, yachts and boats to PW1. #tpo_samebigsky #sunrise #ship

  4. Today is Project X - a mysterious, excitingly devious plan schemed up by @thepierone in Sydney. It's an Australia-wide, sunrise and sunset rolling-instameet. And it's awesome! I'm here with @loves_laughs @jayedevil as the Tassie recruits. There's people all over Australia playing along with us! What a beautiful community I hope you have a fabulous day! #tpo_samebigsky #sunrise #hobart
