My son, the hipster

Here's a photo of my oldest son, Nick, who is just leaving Richmond, Virginia after living there for 5 years. After Williamsburg in Brooklyn, Richmond is probably the second biggest hipster hangout on the East Coast. Virginia Commonwealth University, where Nick went to school, has a hip and trendy art school and the hipster aesthetic is in full bloom there -- single gear bikes and all.
For comic relief, here is the Hipster Olympics.
As you can see, Nick scores high in the "Ironic T-Shirt" category.

How did I miss this? He's so adorable I could reach through the screen and give him a big ole mama bear hug. I hope you get an occasional chance to do that.

hmmmm... he's only missing the white belt, then he would be uber-hipster.
