of the colourful mica... and the Kindness Movement...

Formerly the Old Hill Street Police Station, this building with colourful windows is now known as the MICA Building.

What is MICA? MICA stands for Ministry of Information, Communications and the Arts. Want to know what MICA does? Drop by their website. :-)

on dirait les fenĂȘtres d'une maison de poupĂ©e.

It looks like the windows of a doll house.

There are three photos so use the right arrow to scroll to the other two.

There are several art galleries on the ground floor and they are well worth a visit.

Very beautiful building! The striking colours of the window sills make it more fascinating.

Act of kindness....I try to do it as often as I could, unconsciously of course. Last week, I cooked lunch for some friends. And we all had a good time together ~ that's the reward from the good act!

I haven't visited for awhile so it's been fun looking at all the posts I've missed. I like the uniformity and symmetry of the facade on this building. Kindness? Walking dogs at an animal shelter in Mazatlan, Mexico. Go to my blog today, Jan 17 to see one of the animals.

I love-love-love this picture!! Olivier's comment made me laugh - so true. And I think the different colors and the open doors and windows illustrate so well the concept of kindness (open mind, open heart). Lovely!
