Brian Reda is a photographer and stay-at-home dad.
A dad responds to negative comments about his parenting with some pretty awesome photos.
Yesterday he posted this photo on Reddit, and his hardcore hand gesture was met with some backlash.
In response, he uploaded even more photos.
“Some people put up quite the stink about the “metal hand” in the picture of my son at the zoo,” he wrote.
“I’m a stay-at-home dad and [this is] the way I’ve chosen to document our life together.”
“So suck it. Dad life is metal.”
But there’s more to the story than just a really metal dad.
Instead of taking photos of just his son, Reda says the hand gesture makes him part of the story, too.
“We’re a little team,” he said.
Reda’s captured all the important moments of parenthood, from the easy ones…
…to the hard ones.
From the fun stuff…
…to the not-so-fun.
And while Reda agrees dad life is pretty much the most metal thing there is…
…he says the most metal award goes to his wife, Angela.
Rock on, Metal Dad.
