There are a few images on my site that cause people to have a wild uncontrollable desire to deep link. One of them is a picture of a rose, which I don’t actually think is my best work. Another is:
A user of British celebrity gossip site found this photo last night and used it in a forum post. When I went to bed the machine was serving a copy of the picture per second, and has now served 10,336 copies with that referrer. That’s the vast majority of the 10,949 requests for this file in the last week.
I should point out before it’s too late that the picture is of my oldest son Andrew, and was taken on a hot day in the botanic gardens when Andrew was teething. He’s chewing the bottle because it’s cold and hard, a common criteria for teething kids. Please don’t take my kids off me!
