    Notice, Take Notice Of

    I have a question about the verb "notice" and verb phrase "take notice of":


    1. "He noticed a stranger in the corner."
    2. "He took notice of a stranger in the corner."


    Are "notice" and "take notice of" the same? The dictionaries are not too clear about their difference.

    They both work if the person is in a room.
