I took my camera along, hoping to scoop a couple of shots of Mr Humphries through the crowd but was pleased to find, as my husband and I had arrived early, there were very few people, and Mr Humphries, at times, was standing on his own. I was keen to get a photo of this popular and funny entertainer so took a deep breath and approached him. We had a brief chat about the book (he told me he'd look up my photo) before he politely excused himself so he could be interviewed by the Channel 10 news. I was disappointed I hadn't had the chance to ask if he would pose for a photo.
The launch went more smoothly (photographically). I was at the front of the crowd so was able to get clear shots. The lighting wasn't as good, though, so his face ended up a little flashed.
