Stoned hipsters…

This artist Leo Caillard makes old school statues into hipsters.

I’m not sure why I like these so much.

Like this.

And this…

And this.

I’m not sure

This is great.

This shirt has never been so appropriate.

I take photos of cafe food. Because I have a coffee blog. I guess that makes me a hipster. But most of the time I don’t want to see photos of your food on Instagram. Unless you’re somewhere really cool. Here’s POHTPOF
