The "Photography Effect"

I was looking through some old pictures for something to post and I saw some that reminded me about something that was frustrating me last trip. I'm wondering if you've experienced it too:

Many times I'll see something that no one is looking at and I think "that will make a great picture." So I get out my camera and start trying to take a picture of it. This of course makes passerbys think there's something really interesting about whatever I'm taking a picture of, and they start gathering around and getting in my shot.

Does this ever happen to anyone but me?

I've actually seen this happen. Everyone figures if you're taking a picture, whatever you're shooting must be interesting.
