Smoke gets in your eyes

I've been trying to capture smoke from an incense stick but it's been such a hard task for me. I haven't got a remote flash which you need so i've spent two hours trying to fathom a way round it. I finally managed this with a flash attachment pointed up towards the ceiling. It's not the greatest of shots but it's not bad for a first attempt I suppose. Any advice would be gratefully received.

I've seen 5million times better Bob but thankyou anyway. It's not bad I suppose for a first go. A friend of mine has given me some pointers what to do (and what to buy LOL) to help it work better. Off to Ebay for a spot of buying.
