Let me introduce you to the baby in the picture. His name is Sam Griner, and the picture was taken by his mother Laney in August 2007 when the boy was 11 months old.
The picture was taken by Laney at a beach in Jacksonville, Florida. She liked it immediately and posted it on Flickr.
Laney didn’t know it then, but five months later, the picture was already getting passed around on MySpace with the caption “I Hate Sandcastles.” Many users began incorporating the photo into their profiles. Then humour sites like Damn Funny Pictures and Daily HaHa discovered it, and the image truly went viral. He’s an awesome little boy
