There is an original beauty of dying or transition in any other condition in it. In the image of the city by N. Bogomolov you can’t find smart kinds recognized from guidebooks. It is interesting to author to observe the life of streets and court yard, their inhabitants, to transfer something imperceptible, peculiar only to this city, to understand it’s soul.
