Meet Sophia and Aphrodite.
Last week I made arrangements to photograph Aphrodite for the People at Work Series. Steve and I’ve known Aphrodite for more than 23 years now. Sophia asked me if I knew what Sophia meant and I had to admit I didn’t.
But I do now! Wisdom. And Aphrodite means Love.
I ordered two eggs over medium, dry wheat toast with butter on the side and potatoes with the well done crispy bits. Coffee and a glass of water.
I asked Sophia if I might photograph her, too, and she graciously agreed. I forgot to ask Sophia how long she’s worked at Ritter’s Diner but I know Aphrodite has worked there for 39 years!
Chances are if you’re from Pittsburgh, you’ve had the good fortune to meet both of these wonderful women.
