Pictures of the day

A large number of Yahoo's "Most Emailed Photos" are of an uncontacted indigenous tribe of people who live on the border between Brazil and Peru.

But the photos attached to the BBC report of the story are much larger and better.

According to the BBC story, "
More than half the world's 100 uncontacted tribes live in Brazil or Peru, Survival International says."

The Guardian's report on hidden tribes does not add significantly to the BBC story.

Finally, here is the AP coverage.

I kind of hope for their sakes that they stay uncontacted for now, even if that represents several types of naivete on my part. Is that possible with these photos? Were they taken from very far away by unobserved photographers who had no intention of making first contact?

Yes, all the photos were taken from a plane, and no one approached them from the ground. To my understanding.

But if they get contacted, maybe their cellular service will improve?
