Marilyn Monroe

The City Life sculptures are back in Dayton for their final appearance (see previous post).  There are 15 life size bronze sculptures throughout the center of the city.  And since there is a small slice of sky reflected in the building, I thought this could qualify for Skywatch Friday. Please enlarge to see how beautiful and life-like this sculpture is.

That is amazing! I like the reflection of the sky as well.

I'm in Northeastern Ohio, so Coshocton is just under two hours from here, I think. Enjoy the balloon festival! (We're stuck here till ball season is over. LOL)
