"Just come out" (rough translate), Dmitriy Sirotin

I thought about how to combine trains (the main character lives at the railway station), a feeling of curiosity and sadness.

When we travel by train, we usually look with interest from the window at the areas outside. So I chose the angle where the viewer looks at the world from inside the salon.

There is something melancholic about traveling, because you temporarily become a tumbleweed. And autumn outside the window usually enhances this state. After reading fragments from the book, I also retained a feeling of slight sadness, but not sharp, like a little excitement in a teenage way.
