san francisco native.

i like the weird and wild side of life.
the magic, the mysterious, and the
so ordinary it's extraordinary.

i try to cultivate celebration and awe
in the everyday. photography both
helps and frustrates me in my
endeavors to do so.

currently i take photographs. i'm
working on making them.

i'm a lover, not a hater.
and i've got my own disco ball.

i have another flickr site, for party pics
and longer series, at starryeyez.

i'm available for weddings, events, portraits, and more.

I'm Female, 40 and Dangerous.

    "Pilar delights me with every post. Plus she's synonymous with monkeys. It doesn't get much cooler than that."

    "Pilar's images have a charming sort of whimsy that boarders on growly seriousness. She has a serious whimsy. She demands that you smile!"

    "Sure, Pilar takes great pictures with her fancy dance Nikon and she's a real hero with her GoPro, but the only reason I'm here is the off-chance she might start posting xxx nudes of herself."

    "I was gonna write you a testimonial about how entertaining I find your photos, and about how your work is like creative elastic goo, but there were like 20 others doing the same thing so I bagged the idea."

    "calm, cool, and collective, and one of burningman's best photographers, she is near-impossible to beat in the alkaline desert wastelands.
    she is quizzical, comical, and will burrow into your skin faster than a tick on a hot augusta summer..."

    "Like me, Pilar in the flesh is a little loud and rough around the edges. Not for the faint of heart, she has an enthusiasm for life that is clear from the moment you meet her, and that is what she tries and is successful in bringing forth in her photography. I always enjoy looking at her stream and seeing what adventures she's gotten up to, and luckily, some of them involve me."

    "pilar is an awesome person. her pictures always show the fun and love in life, and i totally admire that. if all people would live life like she does, we would have fewer problems in life, but maybe less shame (as spammy said, this is probably a good thing).

    her pictures always makes me think of my friends, and what i can do to brighten up my every day. pilar is a true flickr whore, and she and her pictures just rock!"

    "like her profile says, "single and dangerous"!!!!
    if i was a man, i would either want to be pilar's lover or best gay boyfriend. since i am not a man, i live vicariously through her antics and exciting life.
    her photography is always surprising me. her view on life is a roller coaster. she gets a big "you rock!" from me.

    "what can i say about pilar? her last name is very similar to my last name, which makes me think that we're loosely related. which, if you think about it, would be pretty cool, because she's totally awesome. oh and she takes good photos. and also she is shameless which i think is a good thing."

    "Pilar has a wonderful way of viewing the world and conveys strong emotions through her images.

    Her stream inspires me in more ways than I could ever find words for and her wicked sense of humour is always a treat!!"

    "words like talented, creative and artist are too overused. but they are so appropriate here. i always know that it is going to be an adventure visiting her stream. a reminder of how powerful photography can be."

    "I'm sure she could do 'boring & conventional' really well, but she has so much individuality, which shows in all her pictures - quirky, eccentric & genius would be some choice words for her talent.

    And she has an amazing whorish tokhes :-)

    I don't know whether I'd survive drinks with her and any of the motley bunch above, but I'm sure the pictures of any such event would be pretty cool!!"

    "Pilar doesn't miss a beat. She is a Flickr enigma.
    I live vicariously through her and her photo stream. Whether she's being serious or just a plain goofy, her energy and appreciation for the good things in life shine through in her images.
    Besides, she's a whore. Whores are cool."

    "Pilar rocks my online world with her wit, humour and good eye for that thing that's a bit different.

    Definitely someone I'd like to meet and go out drinking with.

    Oh, and she's pretty hot too ;)"

    "Pilar's photos are so awesome. She is a rock star, caring, and really knows how to capture a moment.

    When I get all rich and famous, I want Pilar to be the first person to photograph me. Then we are going to booze it up and have an awesome time."
