The Frog Rock's Baby

This rock, shaped like a frog and painted to look like one, sits in front of a house on Woodheath Avenue, the street I grew up on, in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

It is a miniature copy of the famous Frog Rock, a large chunk of limestone that sits by the entrance to the Hanson Limestone quarry on Ardmore Avenue, on the western edge of the neighborhood.

Decades ago, someone noticed that the big rock outside the quarry looked like a frog, and painted it to look like a green frog. The Frog Rock, which originally sat behind the quarry on Sandpoint Road, became a well-known landmark in the Waynedale area of Fort Wayne.

The owners of this house on Woodheath paid tribute to the original Frog Rock with this little one, which is only about 2 feet long. I think its funny that they put a fly on its nose!

All of my prints are available framed or unframed. I use black metal Neilsen & Bainbridge frames with white cotton unbuffered museum board for the mat and backing board for maximum archival protection. Photographs are printed on an Epson pigment printer using Epson's archival ultrachrome inset for long life.
