Camera Explorer Revisited - Bow Boutique now on Not on the High Street!

So this will be my fist revisiting post (there's another coming really soon too!) in my Camera Explorer series. Think of it like Wife Swap: The Aftermath or The Xtra Factor except prettier, less dramatic and less likely to grace the pages of Heat magazine.

So, you might remember my first Camera Explorer post was a photographic ode to the lovely Bow @ The Printworks. The fabulous Susanna has since been working her socks off and has a new online shop at Not on the High Street. She recently contacted me to see if I would be interested in taking some photos for the new site and, being the snap-happy lover of all things Bow that I am - of course I agreed! You can see her take on it on the Bow blog here. (DISCLAIMER: Susanna lies, I am not too beautiful to sweat.)

And here is my take on the shoot:

When Susanna told me that Sally was kindly letting us shoot in her "amazing" house, I didn't really know what to expect. I have a fair number of friends who are students and so usually when someone says a house is "amazing" it usually means it has two bathrooms and is twenty seconds away from an off-license. Sally is no student. The house is amazing and I probably embarrassed myself by spending about 90% of the shoot just gawping. Every room is spectacular, fresh and immaculate - when we moved the toaster THERE WASN'T A SINGLE CRUMB... and the colours! Oh the colours! It was divine. We shot in just about every room and even the cat was photogenic.

At one point, Sally and I realised that we had actually met before, a couple of years ago when we both took our children to the same playgroup.
 "If you'd told me then" I said, clicking my camera "that we'd one day be in you garden trying to photograph a chicken and a cushion, I'd never have believed you!"
