Up escalator teeth

Escalators are not to be messed with. They look angry. As a little boy I fell down one of these contraptions in a department store. I fell all the way from top to bottom, and I remember being scraped up a bit by those teeth that protrude upward like an extended jawline. Ever since I’m careful not to mess around, but I did have to take three trips up this particular moving staircase with a tripod to get this shot.

If you look at the top of the escalator you can see the security monitor hanging down all blurred. They must’ve been watching me, because they kept looking at me when I reached the top like I was becoming a problem. I pretended to have cellphone service only on the escalator and took another trip. Amazingly, that worked.
