In case you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll know that the iPhone 5s goes on sale tomorrow around the globe. We’ve been watching the lines start to form via the magic of the internet, keeping an eye on Twitter and Instagram, for starters.

As you get in line tonight, and tomorrow morning, feel free to send us your photos of the queues you’re sitting and standing in to us (sorry, you need Javascript to see this e-mail address)or Twitter.

Here’s several form-ups we’ve seen:

Dresden seems to have way too many people already: an estimated 1200 folks have lined up outside this one Apple store.

Munich has a good bit of crowd started, so maybe Germany is the place to avoid if you don’t like long lines.

Cult of Mac reader Patrick Cohen reinforces that impression with his panorama from the Oberhausen, Germany queue.

China’s got a ton of folks set up, too, like at this Beijing Apple Store, which CNBC’s Eunice Yoon says is the biggest in the country.

In Ginza, we’re not sure what exactly is going on, but there are some folks sitting down there to the left of the guy in the bad Steve Jobs mask and giant iPhone 5s costume.

Over at the Shibuya store, however, it looks like folks are already headed inside.

The Bondi Junction, Australia store has some bright orange line markers to keep the crowds in check. The iPhone 5s is on sale down under already, where the Sydney store may have sold the world’s first iPhone 5s.

In Liverpool, though, there’s not much of a line, yet.
