Helge's lair

Welcome to my blog! My name is Oleg.

Here are just reblogs of different stuff and things which are interesting for me such as:

-gowns (gothic, victorian style and others);

-pretty and beautiful women (classical Holywood and some exceptions);

-technical history (computing, information technologies, military aviation);

-vintage, steampunk.


Alma mater: Siberian federal university, Institute of space and information technologies (Russia, Krasnoyarsk).

I have a specialist degree as engineer in the direction of automation of manufacturing processes.

Cave 19 at the Ajanta Caves, Maharashtra, India.

Ajanta contains 30 excavated rock-cut caves which belong to two distinct phases of Buddhism: the Hinayana phase (2nd century BC-1st century AD) and the Mahayana phase (5th century AD-6th century AD). These caves are considered to be one the finest examples of early Buddhist architecture, cave-paintings, and sculpture.

The first and second photos were taken by Kirk Kittell, the third is by Arian Zwegers.
