Around the hood

Spring is here! This is Australia, so it was never too far away, but for the last month or so the flowers started budding like crazy. Lots of magnolias, but also wild freesias, and tons more that I can’t even name. And the animals! I didn’t manage to capture any on camera, but I saw so many birds – cockatoos (obvs!), kookaburras (❤️), lorikeets, bush turkeys, plus rabbits and even a fox! 🦊 And that’s before I go for a walk to our little pocket of bushland (that’s what we call a native Australian forest). It’s totally green and lush and feels like you’re a million miles away, even though it’s 5 minutes (not a typo) from my house.

Looking up

I struggle with photography these days. I’d like to do more if it, but can’t seem to find worthy subjects. Photographing the everyday things feels boring. I love to travel and take photos, but there’s not much opportunity for that these days, and pretty soon it’s going to go down to zero for a while. But I read recently something that deeply resonated with me – your everyday life, no matter where you live, is foreign or even exotic to someone else.

I live in Sydney – a dream travel destination for many. While living here isn’t all sunshine and surf — I spend most of the time within a few miles radius of my house, in my non-beach suburb — it’s still pretty good. There’s beautiful greenery and my beloved palm trees, the weather is fabulous most of the year, and I do get to go the beach, often every week. So I’m going to try to get over the fact that I’m photographing the same things a lot, and focus on photographing my everyday with purpose.

Lately we’ve been blessed with amazing sunsets, full of warm light, and incredible colors. This was one of those days, when I couldn’t resist grabbing my camera and snapping a few pictures in my backyard. All it took to find inspiration, was to look up.

And after a few minutes sky turned orange during this glorious sunset.

May 2016: Hajj Flemings, CEO of Rebrand Cities with renowned photographer, Shawn Lee, in a redesigned school bus en route to working with small business owners in Detroit.

Earlier this year, while working in Detroit with small business owners and the Rebrand Cities team, it became clear that entrepreneurs and publishers are looking for a simpler way to accept digital payments on their sites.

Our Happiness Engineering team — the guardians of our customers — also weighed in, and we knew that we wanted to make an existing process simpler. So we set a design goal of bringing a 15-minute-long process to under a minute — especially for a customer that has never used PayPal before.

So a small team of engineers and designers came together to solve that problem with the intent of releasing a “Version One” with which we could start to understand how a simpler…
