…and long, long ago… would be expected for your grandma 
but not for a child lost in the space within.

Light is free… capturing it is not!

Far, far away, long, long ago…
Isn't is the way stories start in English?
This can not apply to this very young girl living today!

So that's what you're trying to say? I like this shot. Really good timing for the photo.

Well, in fact, stories in English usually begin with "Once upon a time...". But, in any case, what does your observation have to do with the image?. The image apparently does not make a clear case for its title, so I'll try to clarify: The girl is shown in a mundane, messy domestic setting, from which her expression and "thousand yard stare" indicate she has momentarily escaped. The background is de-emphasized to make the point clearer. Thus :Far, far away".
Again thanks for commenting.

She was lost in the moment. Good timing.

Yes, John, this is exactly what I read.

"Long, long ago"… as I said, can not apply to
this very young girl living today! :)

Who said "Long, long ago?" Not I. If you got the "story" of the image, why then, gratuitously, add 

"and long, long ago… would be expected for your grandma 
but not for a child lost in the space within."

If you were trying to make some point, it's not clear what you had in mind, or why my grandmother was brought into the conversation.
