Esther17. Get yours at

313.366 | the memory of you

i'm short, relatively mellow, slightly crazy, and will never turn down a freshly-made brownie.

If you are interested in using or displaying my photos in a blog, site, or other commercial manner, please contact me via Flickrmail. In other words, do not steal them, or I will get extra cranky, and that's never a good thing.

p.s. no big, sparkly icons or group invites in the comments, please. i like my retinas just the way they are, thanks.

p.s.s. if you fave one or many of my shots, or put them in a gallery, and have nothing available in your photostream for me to see, odds are good that i will either block you or/and remove my shot from your gallery. quid pro quo, y'know?

    "I adore Esther. We've been "friends" on Flickr and now Facebook and all those other sites for years. She always makes time to visit my stream and say nice things, and I can always, always count on her to make me laugh with her awesome self portraits. I hope she never goes away. :)"

    "How does anyone who has Esther as a contact *not* write a testimonial for her?!? While her photographic eye gets better and better with each new concept (or camera) she tries, she remains one of the sweetest, dearest human beings ever."

    "Esther has been a friend of mine for many years. I consider myself one of the lucky people on earth that actually get to hang out with her. Even if it’s been months, she’s ready to hang out as if it has only been days. She is sweet, funny, EXTREMELY creative and talented. Her photography is highly entertaining and makes you laugh out loud. Yes she’s very humble about it all. The dear girl has let me ramble on about what I've learned in photography (like I was teaching her what I knew) and she never once mentioned her own talent and creativity.... she just let me ramble. She's a doll and an inspiration. :)"

    "God I love this woman.

    She is completely unafraid to follow her mood where it takes her - to the playground, the bar, or the top of the saturation meter. And everywhere she goes, you want to be - and she's sweet enough to want you to be there."

    "When Esther turns on her camera, it is like little color whore fairies escape and bring back photos that are lively, bright and fun.

    When I need some color medicine, I stop by Esther's stream. You should, too. You won't be disappointed."

    "esther is the big bright shining sun of flickr, and her joy and humanity and sweetness and spirit and humor and interest and concern and vision and lust for life make this space infinitely more enjoyable for anyone lucky enough to stumble across her stream. she also takes her camera everywhere, including her beloved storage unit, and what's not to love about that?!? i ask you.

    plainly said, the girl kicks ass six ways to sunday."

    "Esther was one of my first contacts here on Flickr, and I owe her (thank you!) for taking the time to make a complete stranger feel welcome. I anxiously wait for her photos to appear, often putting a wonderfully quirky, ironic twist on the most ordinary, everyday items. Every picture is so much more than an image; it tells a story, weaves a tale. You can't help but feel pulled into her day, prancing around in those red keds, sharing her fantastic sense of humour, seeing things through her giggling eyes. If you manage to browse through more than three photos without so much as a smile or chuckle... well, you've got serious issues. She's also *insanely* photogenic, red keds and all. No matter what she does, the self-portraits always turn out great. It's kinda disturbing, lol."
