The 5ft 6 ampersand

I spent my Sunday afternoon on my bedroom floor, making a 5ft 6 ampersand out of paper. As you do...
One of my college summer project tasks is to pick your favourite character from your favourite typeface and re-scale it to your own height. I'm a bit of a sucker for a Rockwell ampersand (bold, italic). I'd quite like to take some photos of it outside somewhere. Need an extra pair of hands, though. The above shot involved a tripod, self timer, and 10 seconds to leap on to my brother's bed and hold up the ampersand. Not ideal.
