If you ever stumble upon a swarm of fireflies, slowing your shutter speed can produce dazzling results. Yume Cyan has been shooting long exposure images of the bioluminescent insects in a forest outside Nagoya City, Japan.

There’s a bar in town that has the very best fries. They put brown sugar on them. Genius. If you’re a Springfield local and you haven’t tried JOB’s fries yet, you totally should. But if you’re not local, or you don’t feel like leaving your house, then you could just make these instead.These are the best homemade baked fries. So, so good. How ever many you make in your first batch, you will wish you had made more. But of course, your waist line might not. So… don’t say I didn’t warn you.Brown Sugar Baked Fries, makes 2 servings. Slightly adapted from here.
3-4 small potatoes (I used Russet)
4 tablespoons oil (I used olive)
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoons brown sugar
First peel and rinse off the potatoes. Cut them into fries. Try to keep them as uniform in width as possible, otherwise the super thin fries will cook too much while super thick fries will not cook all the way. Plunge the cut potatoes into warm water and let them soak for 20 minutes. Drain and lay them out over a bed of paper towels and pat dry.Coat a rimmed baking sheet with 3 tablespoons oil. Sprinkle on half of the salt and pepper. In a bowl coat the now dry potatoes with the remaining 1 tablespoon oil. Lay them out on the rimmed baking sheet in a single layer. Sprinkle on the remaining salt and pepper. Cover with aluminum foil and bake at 475°F. After 5 minutes remove the foil. Continue baking for 10-12 minutes then rotate the pan. Continue baking for another 10-12 minutes. Then use a spatula or tongs to flip each fry. Sprinkle on 1 tablespoon of brown sugar and then continue to bake for another 10 minutes. Remove the fries to a bed of paper towels, to remove excess oil. Sprinkle on the remaining 1 tablespoon brown sugar just before serving.If you make these then you gotta make burgers. It’s a must. But you will probably fill up on fries. Or at least I did. :) Enjoy! xo. Emma

For my subjects there is no question of privacy; they are performing behind a transparent scrim on a stage of their own creation with the curtain raised high. The Neighbors don’t know they are being photographed; I carefully shoot from the shadows of my home into theirs. I am not unlike the birder, quietly waiting for hours, watching for the flutter of a hand or the movement of a curtain as an indication that there is life within.—Arne Svenson
After inheriting a bird-watching telephoto lens from a friend, New York-based photographer Arne Svenson embarked on an intriguing and voyeuristic project, The Neighbors, capturing little stolen moments of the residents of a glass-walled apartment building across the street from his NYC studio. The resulting images are small movements and quiet details; they are the moments when noone’s looking—until now.
The Neighbors opens May 9 at Julie Saul Gallery in New York and will remain on view through June 29, 2013.
