Dads are the Original Hipsters

No, I never tire of witty photo blogs and this one is for all the hip dads out there.

One of my favourite photos of my dad shows him (holding me as a baby… So that’s thirty-seven years ago) sporting mammoth sideburns that are straying into ‘mutton-chop’ territory, a camel roll-neck jumper and brown-checked flairs. He’d fit right in today in some circles!

Brad Getty has put together a neat-o photo blog, Dads are the Original Hipsters. The blog shows dads from all walks of life in their younger (and dare I say ‘glory’?!) days – partying, hanging out, at work and at home. There’s fashions and activities on record that will make you laugh out loud. Getty also highlights the point that dads were doing hip things long before you – wearing Converse, playing electronic games and rockin’ slogan t-shirts.

Just don’t laugh too loud though – you know your kids will be posting photos of you to a similar blog in thirty years, right?
