Meet the Santa Clarita Spartans!

Things are finally looking up for Nicholas and his soccer team. After leaving VUSC, he joined Santa Clarita United and started practicing with their current team. They welcomed him with opened arms and Nicholas felt comfortable right away. When VUSC split up a few months back, many of Nicholas' old team mates joined him and started practicing with SCU. The two groups of boys compliment each other and together they make a pretty strong team!
Last week, this new team, now called the Santa Clarita Spartans, signed up for a Spring league in the San Fernando Valley. They played their first game this past Saturday and lost 0-1 to a U15 Silver team! These photos were taken at the game:

These first 14 players are all U14 and are the core group:

These last three players are U15 and will not play with us in the Fall. They are joining the team only for the Spring league .

Photowalk #4: W.S. Hart Park

Last week was a busy one so I didn't get a chance to go for a Photowalk; I went for many walks but forgot my camera every time. So when I got a cancellation this morning, I decided to go on a photowalk and try something different. I used my iphone and "Hipstamatic". Hipstamatic is a camera app, and it seeks to recreate the experience of using an old analog camera as accurately as possible. It was fun and the looks on the photos is quite different as you can see:

So from now on, camera or not, I can still get my photowalk done on time! To see more images from this photowalk and previous ones, visit my website at: www.nathalieseguinphotography.com

Photowalk #3: Townsley Canyon

On Friday March 17th, 2010, I went for a hike at Ed Davis Park in Townsley Canyon, just West of the I-5 between the Santa Clarita and the San Fernando Valleys. There are two hiking trails that take you up in the mountains: a 1.9 mile Canyon View Loop and a 5.1 Mile Loop. Having hiked both these trails before, I chose the shorter one for this week's Photowalk project. The view was beautiful, and the slopes were covered in wild flowers. It was a great hike with a lot of opportunities for some great shots!

Walking Adventures in SCV - Week 2

This is the second week of my 52 Photowalks project. I decided to go for a walk along the Bike Path. The Santa Clarita Valley has over 60 miles of trails and paseos. So I started at the Camp Plenty Road trailhead and went East just a little bit past Sierra Hwy. This trail lines up the Santa Clara River which is usually dry. But this year due to El Nino, there is still water in the River bed!
I was impressed by how quiet my walk was, considering the proximity of major roads such as Soledad Canyon or Sierra Hwy. I could hear the birds, and in some places (where the water was deep enough and running fast enough), I could hear the water flowing down the river...
