Yeah, I sometimes feel weird... With my scanner, binoculars and camera all in tow... Especially when I'm alone. When other spotters who I've become acquainted with are around I don't feel as odd, though.
Wow.... Quite the turn-out! Is it like that all the time, or, just on week-ends? Here at Toronto Pearson the spotting locations get busiest on week-ends... But, not to that extent. However, because there are a couple of places to view airplanes, no one location get too congested. Maybe, if we had only one location... Well, then it might look like what's shown in the photograph.
