This is a nice concept – taking photos of things you ‘notice’ and uploading them to flickr with the tag ‘noticings’ and a geolocation. Noticings are interesting things that you stumble across when out and about.
In short, Noticings is basically a game about learning to look at the world around you, as their site states – Cities are wonderful places, and everybody finds different things in them. Some of us like to take pictures of interesting, unusual, or beautiful things we see, but many of use are moving so fast through the urban landscape we don’t take in the things around us.
You need a camera, and a way of recording where a photo was taken. That might be adding it by hand to the image within Flickr, or it might be a GPS. The ideal device to play Noticings is a camera with GPS built-in, such as the camera on a Smartphone like an iPhone or Android device.
