The 9th Worldwide InstaMeet (#WWIM9) took place this weekend and was by far the most international InstaMeet to date! From Karachi to Moldova to Yokohama, thousands of Instagrammers gathered together to make photos and connect around a shared passion for capturing the world’s moments. Many communities got especially creative with their group shots, such as NYC, Barcelona, and Shanghai. Thank you all for making the Instagram community such an extraordinary place full of imaginative, dedicated and compassionate individuals who inspire us everyday!

Here is a sampling of some of the InstaMeets from this weekend that caught our eye:
