Retired Family Practice physician living in Eugene, Oregon with a vacation house in The Dalles, Oregon. My special interests are wildife, fishing, and outdoor photography. I am especially interested in the Columbia River Gorge and the high desert ecosystem of the Columbia plateau of eastern Oregon I call Wheatlandia. I have been making 360 Panoramas for 10 years.

I've had a life-long interest in photography that started back in the film days. I even had a darkroom at one point. Then came digital and things really got fun.
I've always viewed photography as a way to show others as realistically as possible the beautiful places on earth. For years I felt like standard single-frame photography was like looking through a key-hole.
Then came single-row panoramas and the key-hole opened up. I could photograph to some degree what I was seeing.
Finally, I found spherical panoramas and the key-hole is gone - one more dimensional limitation removed. Now I feel like I can show the viewer what I saw.

Don Manion grew up in suburban New York. Eager to explore areas that were new and unknown to him, he quickly learned to turn toward the nearby Long Island Sound as an avenue of discovery. Open spaces and wilderness seem to speak to him in a way that can be better understood through his photographic works.
Besides the many years developing his eye while working and cruising on the US and Canadian north eastern coast, Don has also lived in the desert Southwest for the last 10 years.
Rarely without a camera Don has turned to panoramic photography to better share some of his experiences with anyone who ever felt passionate about what is up the next canyon!
Dividing his time between the Southwest and Coastal New England, Don is comfortable in many environments.

Diarna, “Our Homes” in Judeo-Arabic, is the flagship initiative of Digital Heritage Mapping, Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit specializing in digitally preserving historic and cultural sites worldwide. The project pioneers the use of digital mapping technologies to explore the unfolding of Jewish history in the Middle East and North Africa through the prism of physical location by digitizing individual sites (schools, cemeteries, synagogues, shrines) and memories.
Anyone with an Internet connection can use Diarna to travel across the region as if on eagles' wings, unaffected by political and inter-religious strife below. Previously unknown or difficult to visit sites are now "visitble" via Diarna's weaving and synthesizing of satellite imagery, immersive panoramas, three-dimensional architectural models, archival and contemporary photography, scholarship, and oral history recordings.
Dirven by a team with diverse background and outlooks--including young Muslims eager to discover their shared history--Diarna has been: featured as a resource for scholars in the "Encyclopedia of Jews in the Islamic World" (Brill Publications, 2010); recognized as one of the 50 most innovative Jewish projects in North America by the Slingshot Fund (2009-2010); the subject of a panel at the Association of Jewish Studies' 42nd Conference; profiled in Haaretz (http://goo.gl/2N9VZ); and is partnered with Wellesley College, the Alliance Israélite Universelle, Beit Hatfutsot: The Museum of the Jewish People, and the Yad Ben-Zvi Institute.
The immersive panos published here are an advance preview of The Diarna Project's D'fina exhibit (http://www.JewishMorocco.org), dedicated to uncovering the "buried" or "covered" Jewish treasures of Morocco.
Spanning the entire country, from metropolitan centers to remote villages, D’fina proffers a virtual passport to visitors wishing to explore mountain-top shrines of Jewish “saints” that continue to be voluntarily protected by Muslim caretakers, scorpion-guarded genizot (burial grounds for holy texts and objects), anthropomorphic tombstones in seaside cemeteries, synagogues on the edge of the Sahara Desert, and ancient urban quarters with hidden reminders of their one-time residents. This exhibit marks the first public showing of documentation on the majority of these sites, including several Vichy regime desert labor and “discipline” camps where hundreds of Jews and non-Jewish political prisoners toiled, suffered torture, and died during the Holocaust.

A friend introduced me to 360cities and I noticed there weren't many entries for my beautiful home state of Utah. Outside of foreign visitors, there are only a few full time residents here taking 360s. We've now had somejoint field trips and hope to have some more soon.
