a sort of protestation for sure - I hope not against the English Anglican Church - I see we are standing in front of Bath Abbey's entrance.
Chris: Congratulating a graduate coming out of the west door Philine

we normally don't get the view from behind... Love the man reading the sign.
I wonder what the occasion is.
Chris: University graduation in the Abbey Astrid, the rear shot was better than from the front
We're all wondering, Chris. ???
Chris: Their friend had just graduated in a ceremony at the Abbey Ginnie
Congratulations you are now going to find that a degree in most subjects doesn't even guarantee you a job at minimum wage
Chris: They are a complete waste of time & space

Now I think I've seen the other side of this. I think it says "Congratulations"? Were your receiving your own degree certificte - for service to photography, perhaps?
Chris: Yes I was - my thesis on how to astound others with your foto-prowess received rave reviews

I wonder how many people there just stopped to see what was going on. How nice to celebrate a stranger's good fortune.
Chris: It was certainly somebody's big day Pauline, buy who we shall never know..
I am intruiged by the drawing of a tree on the side we are viewing Tiff.
Chris: That could be a cardboard virus Chad
A pleasing sight for them to come out to. Good view from the rear Chris
Chris: Much obliged to you Janet

When one graduates from the abbey, does that make one an abbot, priest or something? Or is this a ceremony linked to some school or university?
Chris: The universities in Bath hold their graduation ceremonies in the Abbey Louis
a splendid idea- instant messaging without a phone.
Chris: Brilliant and novel idea for 2015 eh!
They'll never get that off the ground smile
Chris: Hahaha - very funny!

This is brilliant Chris! I absolutely love the guy on the far right being the only one facing towards us. One wonders exactly what the words were he was reading as he looks a little mystified. Perhaps they'd spelled something wrong and he is an English teacher....
Have just read your replies so now I know what it says.
