I have always liked the look of the OG milkbars that you come across on your travels. Be it the unique typography, the old tiles on the shop fronts or the brand signs that haven’t moved for 40 years, it all draws me visually to them. These are becoming few and far between these days so I wanted to document some of them from my local area.
Although I’ve gone through the Black Spur a handful of times I’ve never really shot it so I set out early one morning recently with my girlfriend and we trekked around a few locations along with a road side pull over and I finally got the ball rolling. My main intension was drone shots and once the rain cleared (and the fog) i was able to get some shots I was happy with.

Last week I got up early and headed out about 45 minutes from my place to the Yarra Valley and up near Kinglake chasing fog and getting some drone shots. I got pretty lucky and scored a bunch I was happy with. Most of these were shot in the Dixons Creek area along with the Kinglake area.
