A woman leans on a ship's railing looking out to sea. The sun is setting and nears the horizon. An albatross keeps company with the ship moving within her sphere of view, whilst in the distance at the other end of the gangway a man leans on the wall and watches. People have a degree of anonymity on ships - and in other modes of travel; they are dislocated from all that is reassuring and familiar and subjected to a new regime of order. They are further restricted by the inhibition of their movement. In such circumstances people encounter relationships which may be transitory, fleeting and which may cause them to reach beyond their natural conduct. In this case, the passengers are far from home and headed to distant places in many senses.
