Photo Of The Month: February
Everyday we look on the #PennyAdventures hashtag, tagged photos, and just keep up with what’s going on in the Penny community in general to find a photo we love and want to highlight as our Photo of the Month. This particular picture caught our eye and we instantly shared it on our Instagram. We deemed Asif’s photo as our #PennyAdventures photo of the month. We had a chance to catch up with Asif to learn more about him, what music he likes, what he does in his free time, and what’s on his bucket list.
Get To Know Asif
We see #PennyAdventures in all different countries. That being said, what country do you live in?
I live in the United States, but I was born in Madagascar and moved to the U.S. back in 1998.
What is your Penny of choice?
My Penny of choice is the Spike 27”. Shop Spike 27″ Here.
Where is your favorite place to go Penny boarding?
My favorite place to go penny boarding is parking decks. On the weekends, they are pretty empty and you can just cruise around, hangout and watch the city from the top of the parking deck.
What do you get up to in your spare time?
I like to take photos. I’ve been doing photography for about a year now and I absolutely love it. It all started with a feeling that I had no outlet to express myself and I didn’t really have something of my own, nothing really to share with anyone or the world. I was always interested in photography, ever since I was young. I was obsessed with capturing moments, but it wasn’t until one of my best friends let me play around with his camera, that I decided to become serious about it. Photography is creative outlet for me that allows me to share my thoughts and emotions with the rest of the world.
What can’t you live without?
I couldn’t live without music. I’m constantly playing music, whether it’s when I’m working my day job, skating, or editing photos, I always have something playing. Music allows me to block out the rest of the world and just focus on what I’m doing at the time.
What is at the top of your bucket list?
Seeing the northern lights is at the top of my bucket list. I’ve always been fascinated with them and seeing the some particles from the sun colorfully clash with the gas atoms in Earth’s atmosphere would be a dream.
What music are you listening to at the moment?
Listen to Asif’s Spotify Vibe Playlist!
