this is probably a styling of the template you have used.
there may be an option in

Admin - left hand side menu - Appearance - Customize.

to change it.

oh I think I've got it. (maybe)
its a plugin in called "WPtouch"
go to admin - left hand side and click on "plugins" and underneath the one called "WP touch Mobile plugin"  De-activate
then reload

You need to go to Appearance | Editor and pull up the theme editor interface.  Assuming these are posts, look for single.php on the right side and if it exists, click it to open it in the editing window.  

From there, we want to look for where the title is set and the code controlling the icon should be right there.  

Caveat: depending on how the theme is constructed, you may see a bunch of references to get_template_part() instead of the code that generates the post.  If so, we have to follow those references and open the correct template file to edit what you want.

ok, as I mentioned earlier its probably the template styling (theme)
the code shows <i class="icon-camera"> <i>  inserted before the title
which will be  defined in a css file of the active theme (template)

Yeah, it can be almost anywhere in the templates.  You have to be able to follow some code to find things.
