Monkey bar memories

Monkey bars.  That's what we called the playground set of bars set in the sand on the school grounds in my youth.  Sets of bars that we could climb in, over, around and through and spend hours outside in the fresh air with friends.  Although today's image of stacked airport luggage cart bars has nothing to do with monkey bars, it was my monkey bar memories that were jogged as I processed this image.  The color version of the original image just did not do anything for me.  It wasn't until I converted it to black and white and darkened it while pumping up the contrast that it began to take shape as an interesting graphic pattern.  Then I could recall being with friends, hanging upside down with my knees over the horizontal bar, dangling like a monkey in the maze of playground monkey bars...
