Smoke as Art

Smoke, in general, is bad. It can smell bad, it signifies a fire or other danger, and cigarettes are just gross. But smoke as a form? As art? Smoke can be beautiful. Artist Thomas Herbrich took thousands of photos of smoke, looking for beautiful shapes and patterns. Here are just a few. Via Colossal:
