An image created to represent the dangers and potential health effects of smoking using an antique silver cigarette box and incense.

The result of a painful ear-infection and time to revisit some of my earlier attempts at smoke photography. Photo manipulation used to include the skull/bones into the stream of smoke which itself looked skull-shaped to me.
