Wow I like this pic.
What does the title say, I got the merkaz (center?) Tel Aviv part but what about the first 2 words, maqom = place? and the other word?

Thanks for the compliment.
And sorry it took me some time to answer, my internet connection was down for more than 24 hours.

makom lina מקום לינה
means sleeping place literally, in the center of the city of Tel Aviv.
I shot the image as part of series of photographs on homeless people's sleeping spots. A small garden right in the city centre serves a number of homeless people as well as stray cats.
During the day the homeless hide their few belongings. When it starts getting dark, they each take up a bench.
Few people walk in this garden in the evening hours. It's very small.

I have been visiting this garden for many years, but only lately did i notice it's home to a lot of people.
