Yes, that long stare out to the horizon, I know it well. A variation is to
shake your head as you're staring, mutter something to yourself and then
take another shot. The system falls down of course when you want someone in
the centre of the frame, but other than that seems to work fine.

I still remember his advise for shooting with the 21mm on the street.
He'd get close to people, shoot with the 21, but always look out on
the horizon like he was shooting out there. The 21 was so wide most
people wouldn't think he was shooting them. He said that if people
just 'looked' at him to see what he was doing, he stop shooting and
fiddle around with the camera. After doing "camera adjustments" for a
while most people would get bored watching him and forget him...
