I've had people do that. They look at what I am photographing, then at me as if they want to scratch their heads, then inevitably they pull out their own cameras (and these days it's usually a small digi cam or even a cell phone) and shoot in the same general direction just in case I got something "cool" that they think they missed. Whatever, I just smile and think "You can't copy me dude! You don't have my eyes!" and walk on, pretty secure in the knowledge that whatever they think are doing it has very little to do with whatever picture I just took.

Just because people are taking pics of the same thing doesn't mean the pics will come out exactly alike. Even under the most ideal circumstances no two photographers will see exactly the same thing. Photography, it's all about point of view and how and what you can see, and I really think that it's quite usual for a whole bunch of people to be standing there looking at the exact same thing only to be seeing something completely different.
