I've encountered this person a couple of times now. He sits down and reads and doesn't ask for change when people pass him. He appears to be well spoken. I've no idea of the situation he's in?

This is beautiful. Careful composition indicates respect for subject. It's intimate without being intrusive. He's part of the bigger picture of the street.

Excellent, Ken. Perfect juxtaposition.
He is very well shod; the soles of his shoes are as good as new. Maybe he just likes sitting on the pavement.

And to add to Woolybill1's (Bill) comment, note the toe caps of his shoes are polished, so there is certainly an element of personal pride in appearance, his clothes perhaps ill fitting, but not particularly tatty, can only surmise his is a free thinking, different character, perhaps a bit, how should I put it, eccentric, nothing wrong there.
And a first rate capture of this street scene, thank you.

Cracking street photography Ken. Totally absorbed by his magazine. SmileSmileSmile

Interesting and very well captured. Perhaps the light is bad where he lives ?

And he was cooperative enough to sit down in the perfect place for that signage behind him. Couldn't be better.

Stunning capture, love the composition and that sign behind him which may be very relevant to a lot of people in these troubled times.

He may look quite distinguished if the barber shops were less scary with Covid happening. An excellent well composed image Ken.
