Waiting For Pizza

On Saturday mornings, the boy and I have our routine – we walk to 9th Street and shop for dinner. When we’re finished, we head to Lorenzo’s for pizza. It was Joe, who began shooting photos of Lloyd as a way to pass time while we were waiting for our slices. I took over the tradition of snapping a picture – at the counter, a table, or outside of the window, every week.

On Saturday, I was heartbroken to learn that George Vellios, owner of Lorenzo’s, had passed away. He made the best pizza in Philly, and was such a lovely man. George was part of my 9th Street “family” –  and the street won’t be the same without him. My heartfelt condolences to his family and employees, Godspeed George.

George Vellios is in the background on the right, doing what he’s done for decades.
