A weekend adventuring

I thought I would start things off with a photo of myself doing the Ricky Bobby, aka, I don’t know what to do with my hands…. We spent some time exploring Bellevue downtown park.  I have never been to NYC, but based on images alone, Bellevue park felt a lot like Central park to me.  … Read More

Random Thoughts

This morning I helped out Dan again, we poured concrete and built up his retaining wall.  The work was not easy, but it most definitely was rewarding. My mind has been scattered lately, trying to figure out what to do with my Tacoma.  I have never missed a payment, despite my lack of steady employment.  … Read More

My House

October 22, 2018By ZachHouse No Comments

How much have I mentioned about my house on my blog?  I’m not sure.  Well, near as I can figure, it was built in the 1890’s.  There is newspaper glued to the wall, that I found underneath 7 other layers of wallpaper, from 1898.  Its crazy to see an advertisement that says “3 pairs of … Read More

This morning we had heavy cloud cover over Seattle.  I love looking at the sky scrapers against the gray blanket of fog. On Saturday’s my friend and fellow Marine Service Engineer Matt works on his new boat.  I need to correct some details in the last post I wrote about it.  The boat is an … Read More

Hiking Summit Lake

Yesterday I needed a reset.  I needed to get away from all the noise, the chaos and just be.  Going camping solo is very therapeutic, albeit lonely, for me. I loaded up my Tacoma with a small tent, my camping pad, sleeping bag, pillow, water bottle, a couple Clif bars, firewood, my laptop and that … Read More

I was talking to my good friend, fellow entrepreneur and  the developer of this website: Marvin.  He was mentioning a self-imposed challenge to create work daily for 100 days and see where that takes his business. I have long wondered if photography just becomes a piece of my puzzle rather than my main source of … Read More

Road Trip Rescue

May 24, 2018By Zachdasphoto No Comments

For this story we have to go back in time 10 years.  My best friend Eric (RIP buddy) sent me a Craigslist ad.  He knew that I had been searching out a VW Rabbit Swallowtail for some time.  There was one for sale for a few hundred dollars.  The car was just a rolling shell, … Read More

Roadtrip Part 2: The Journey Home

May 9, 2018By Zachdasphoto No Comments

Last week I left off my story at the local gas station, with an ice cream and a tea.  I headed towards Highway 101 from just outside of Long Beach, Washington.  If you have never experienced the beauty of Highway 101, then I apologize for not stopping and taking photos.  Over the years I have traveled … Read More

Roadtrip Part 1: To Fix A Bus

April 28, 2018By Zachdasphoto No Comments

Last week a friend of mine asked me if I would come diagnose/fix his school bus.  Diesel Mechanic and electrician are just two of the many skills that I possess.  Being my own boss gives me the liberty to take out of town jobs, and gives me the opportunity to catch up with friends whom … Read More
