But nobody even noticed he was there.
There was a Boston Legal episode where a bergie threw a rock at Danny Crane for ignoring him. Alan Shaw admitted he hadn't noticed him either until the rock was thrown. I remember thinking how true that was.

Thanks for the info. I've only heard the names, never seen them written down.

Could've just plopped it down in a place where there is some other, more immediate distraction around. Hot chick on a sign becomes visible at just that spot, etc...

Remember in magic a major element of the trick is distraction. You won't see the slight if you're being misdirected somewhere else...
I think you're right. And there might be another contributing factor; consider what you'd be doing walking in one of the busiest pedestrian intersections in London. I don't know about you but I'd be looking at pedestrians to avoid running into some random person walking in a direction I wasn't expecting - not down at the ground. The circle he drew around the wallet seems to be for no other reason than to make the audience believe that the circle is significant.
