Inspired by a BBC article, a journalist asked people to share the last “normal photo” on their phones.
The #LastNormalPhoto is now trending on Twitter, with thousands of people sharing images of what feels like a different lifetime.
The BBC recently asked people to share an image their pre-COVID life, asking for the “last normal photo” in everyone’s camera roll.
They then published an article over the weekend with 13 images, and 13 people’s touching stories about those images, from weddings to huge sporting events.
Inspired by the article, journalist Robyn Vinter also asked Twitter users to share, and the response was huge.
