There's something rather frightening about this photo.
Ella however is a great kid. She seems to believe that every plane in the sky is full folk on their way to the shops to buy apples. Specifically apples, nothing else. I am pretty sure that she just spotted an airplane here, and distractedly thought for a moment 'there they go again!'. She has convinced me to think the same now.

ah what a poppet

specifically apples and nothing else?

my mum taught a child who used to watch her rather like that - she found out the child was told by their parent that mum would grow a tree out of her ears because she ate apples whole, core and pips and all

Hmmmm...wonder where she got that idea? Is she wearing apples on her face because she wants to go flying?

It's not the dumbest theory I've ever heard.

Looking at her sweet face I wonder what her diary would look like if she kept one. Does she play Wonder Woman? Or Superman?

The real story is that you got her sweetness down in a memorable image.

Is she wearing applesauce? She's adorable. I love her expression but can't tell whether it's wonder or fright!

Ahh she reminds me of one of my goddaughters who thought everything edible was either POCK or BEEK.
I believe she was allergic to all things BEEK. We never did figure out what the hell she meant. ... well she looked ALOT like your little girl here when she was a toddler.

No-one in that plane flying over to France to get married to a lady that has a flutterby as page boy? How sad.

Let's console ourselves with more apples.

I wonder if someone said at some time that they were off to the Big Apple meaning New York and she has taken this literally. Funny how little minds work!!!!

I like that Big Apple theory. Maybe she thinks the Big Apple is a giant apple market.

I have to disagree about your take on the photo - I don't get frightening at all. It seems so full of life and movement. But Ella does look like a great kid (see I don't totally disagree.)
