Sailors and Marines on board ship are waiting for their laundry to finish in the self-serve enlisted laundry, deep within the ship.  It was a noisy place, full of heat and monotony as the figures show by their body language.  I enjoy painting images depicting slices of (Navy) life—whether exciting or monotonous—and I feel this image does that well.
