Veggie Conquest Halloween Party

The organizers took care of every detail. Graphic design by Michelle Cavigliano.

I don't usually post photos of myself, but I won a prize in the Funniest Costume category for dressing as a Wall Street Fat Cat. I'm appropriately posing in front of a large cat. No, those aren't real Crocs. These I bought for a science-training program for young journalists I participated in a few years ago.

My shadow.

That ribbon is now one of my most prized possessions.

Highlights from a Halloween party at DCTV in Chinatown. Veggie Conquest is an amateur cooking competition -- inspired by the Food Network's "Iron Chef" -- featuring vegan-friendly fare.

Another Afternoon with Ammachi

Leaving her assigned seat in the dining hall because we brought her dinner.

Waiting for my mother.

Comedic moment: Notices I'm not in the elevator to go upstairs.

This photo is out of focus, but that's a great grimace while her finger is pricked for the evening blood-sugar check-up.

Staring at a ground-beef cutlet, with a turmeric-colored yogurt sauce in front of her.

A nurse's cart.

A special toilet in a shower room.

Ammachi Continued

She's a messy girl.

Her recent work from an arts and crafts workshop, under books and upside down.

I experimented a bit with tints. To see more of my work on Ammachi, click here.
