Weekly Challenge #69: Hot/Caliente

Chicago, IL

Finally, we had a little break from near 100F (38C) for almost 2 weeks. But, this spot is over 100F everyday :-)))
This 26-foot stainless steel and aluminum sculpture (by New Jersey-based artist Seward Johnson) of Marilyn Monroe in her most famous pose
stands on Chicago's Magnificent Mile through spring 2012.
