A weekend adventuring

February 12, 2019By Zachdasphoto No Comments

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

A New Direction

November 7, 2018By Zachdasphoto No Comments

I finally have my cell phone back.  My cell phone is my mobile hotspot so that I have the necessary internet connection to bring you these blog posts. I did a lot of reflecting in my absence. The best version of myself for this website is the guy who shares stories and photos from events, … Read More

No Phone: Day 1

October 31, 2018By Zachdasphoto No Comments

I woke up this morning and my phone was toast.  I drove to the T-Mobile store and waited 10 min for them to open.  They helped me call and file an insurance claim.  Then I had to take my laptop to the library and finalize the process over email.  If all goes smoothly, I should … Read More

Roger’s 2018 Halloween Party

October 29, 2018By Zachdasphoto No Comments

I survived the party y’all. In truth, the beverage of choice on tap was Bug Light, so I did not even finish a glass.  If I am drinking a light beer, I prefer Coors Light.  They did have an abundance of Jello shots in the fridge, so I might have helped myself to 8 or … Read More

Halloween Party

Holy Crap tonight is about to be off the hook y’all!  I haven’t been to Roger’s Halloween party since 2012….  I went thru the archives and dug out a couple of the photos that caught my eye.  I charged up the batteries for my Canon, I have the new flash ready to go, and I … Read More

Hacky Sack

October 27, 2018By Zachdasphoto No Comments

I remember learning to play hacky sack in grade school.  I can’t remember if I learned hacky sack before or after my short soccer career.  The skills learned in soccer definitely help you become good at hacky sack.  Why am I talking about this?  Today I have been cleaning my house like mad.  I was … Read More

Just Another Day at the Office

October 18, 2018By Zachdasphoto No Comments

This is the life.  I am sitting on a bench in Kirkland, overlooking the waterfront.  I took off my shoes and walked barefoot across the luscious grass to get down here.  The sound of the waves crashing upon the rocks, plus the dude getting it in his power boat, is so calming and relaxing.  I … Read More

Hiking Summit Lake

October 11, 2018By Zachdasphoto No Comments

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

Its been a minute

October 5, 2018By Zachdasphoto No Comments

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

The Puyallup Fair

September 12, 2018By Zachdasphoto No Comments

or Washington State Fair for all you kids.     I have lived most of my life in the state of Washington.  I grew up out in the country, about a 30 minute drive from the fairgrounds.  Going to the Puyallup fair was a staple in my life every September.  I remember growing up and … Read More
