Rise of the phoenix

The Spandau Ballet are today's background music of mine. Match them with a photography site and you never know what can come out...

I only pray that before I die
Just like a phoenix I will rise and fly
Tell me who's to blame
Oh, I'm a man, now I'm a man in chains

The quote comes from "Man in chains", in the "Through the Barricades" album. The picture actually is ordinary incense smoke colored on the computer; Graham Jeffery describes all the details here. If you are wondering why it makes me think of a rising phoenix I guess you'll have to consult a Rorschach inkblot test expert.
