The photographers have explained:

"We always find someone or something of interest to photograph in and around the Asda, even if we're just taking a shortcut to the Post Office. This splendidly attired gentleman, reminiscent of folkloric characters such as the Burry Man, was chatting to shoppers at a poppy stall in the run up to Remembrance Day."
