Urbana’s Blog Posts: One Writing and Three Photography

1. Happy Columbus Day, Everyone. While Urbana doesn’t say much in this post, he encourages the public to think about how they want to spend the day and to take advantage of it as a great time to list goals. Urbana definitely has a point in using days off productively and to engage in critical thinking as opposed to just vegging out and posting on his website.

2. Pic: Breakfast. At first glance, this appears to be a photograph representing lack as three curly-cue c-shaped cookies on a napkin, a mug half full of coffee, a spoon and a few coins are present on a wooden table. However, the coins indicate that Urbana might have actually been trying to emphasize the point of less is more here. Everything is positioned quite well together by Jon Urbana in a clockwise circular shape, suggesting a cycle of work fitting into survival and vice versa. In artistic terms, that sort of thing is also called a still life.

3. Pic: Cookies and a Bottle of Milk. In the caption below, Urbana says that it’s just a photograph of a bottle of milk and cookies close up. However, the interesting point in this one is that the background is pitch black and the wooden table seems to fade into the black at a distance. Could Urbana have been trying to make a statement about maintaining simplicity even in the darkest of times?

4. Pic: Alone in the Dark. Below it are simply the words, “solitary vegetable”. This one is of a tomato appearing to be gazing at itself in the mirror in a spotlight. It does not appear to be narcissistic of Urbana, but rather just gazing into its own reflection in a certain self-acceptance.

5. Pic: Cookies and Coffee. This one is of a stack of oreos that Jon arranged on the left and a small round glass of coffee on the right on a wooden table against a light wooden background. This one appears to be a simple, vertical alignment between the objects and the background wall.

The Game of Lacrosse and the Brain Behind NLLC, Jon Urbana

Lacrosse is a team sport that is played using a lacrosse stick. The other basic equipment’s needed for the game include a helmet, arm pads, gloves and shoulder pads. The first intercollegiate lacrosse game in the US was played on November 22, 1877 between Manhattan College and New York University. This was after the game was introduced in upstate New York in the 1860’s. One organization that has been at the forefront of promoting lacrosse across the state of Colorado in recent years is the Jon Urbana Next Level Lacrosse Camp (NLLC).

Since its founding by Jon Urbana in 2011, the lacrosse camp has grown to become the premier entity for youth lacrosse in Colorado. The camp is focused on horning specific gaming skills that are critical in promoting player’s interest, style of play and field positioning. Participants in Next Level Lacrosse Camps also get to learn on Facebook from Urbana and some of the most prolific players in the sport, in addition to an all-star cast on Twitter including Jon Urbana and a group of the Denver Outlaws players. The registration dates, and camping schedules for NLLC camps are always available on Jon’s LinkedIn page, and at his  official website. Participants in the camps are encouraged to apply early in order to avoid last minute hassles.
