Baby Pictures

To dream about looking at baby pictures, or seeing your own baby picture, suggests that you are unwilling to let go of your memories and the past. You may be idealizing the past and seeing it as better than it really was. If you dream of seeing a baby picture of someone else (like a friend or boyfriend), you are making excuses for their bad behavior. You need to hold people responsible when they act badly, instead of letting them get away with it. Also see “Photographs” and “Photo Album”... baby pictures dream meaning

The Complete Dream Book

Photograph / Picture

Seeing old or even unfamiliar pictures in your dream may be a reflection of how you remember certain parts of your life. These pictures may represent longing for a time that has passed. However, other interpretations can be made. Although this dream may be difficult to interpret, the dreamer may need to put significant amount of effort into its understanding. Some believe that since a photograph represents something real, it could represent a deception or distortion of some kind. Someone may be trying to sell something to you and is covering up the truth, or you may be doing the covering yourself. New Age thinking points out that dreaming of pictures means you have not learned a particular lesson in life. The dream may be calling attention to past events and reminding you that you are making the same errors all over again. ... photograph / picture dream meaning

Tryskelion Dream Interpretation

Photograph / Picture

Photographs are a record of your past and mark the passage of time so if photographs of your life appear in your dream, this may represent memories, nostalgia; or perhaps your dreaming mind is pointing to a specific period in your life to remind you of lessons learned then but since forgotten. If the photographs are not familiar to you, your dream may have been signifying an aspect of yourself or your sense of direction in waking life. Was the photo clear or out of focus? This may signify how certain or uncertain you are of your attitudes. If you were taking the photograph, this suggests that you feel in control of your daily life. If you were studying a negative or are in a photographic darkroom, this suggests negativity in your daily life but you may also simply be waiting to see what will develop. If the photos come to life, this suggests the living influence of past experience and your continuing involvement in what the picture depicts. Talking photos suggests that you need to remember or take notice of someone or something in your waking life. ... photograph / picture dream meaning

Picture Frame

This image is connected to memories of the past and can indicate a desire to compartmentalize feelings. The frame around a picture completes it. We display imagery that reflects parts of who we are through pictures of loved ones and moments in time from our past. A picture is not the thing it represents, but a reflection of it, often imbued with our fantasies and projections. What we place around such captured moments has great significance to explain our feelings about them. This can represent how we have framed them in our minds to make sense of them. If a picture frame is a prominent image from a dream, you may be processing issues represented by the picture in the frame. The frame connects to some explanation, justification, or limitation in thinking about the person or circumstance being displayed. ... picture frame dream meaning

Picture, Photo

Vision: Seeing several people in a photo: you are thinking of them often. Seeing yourself in a photo: you are too preoccupied with yourself, you see things only from your side; on one hand, that’s a sign of egotism; on the other, its a sign of success and happiness. Dreaming about a picture (or several) falling off the wall: bad luck or at least something unpleasant, often a separation or a death. A picture of a relative or friend falling off the wall for no reason: illness or even the death of that person. Seeing pictures of your deceased parents or friends: freedom from an unpleasant situation soon. The picture of a child, a woman, or friend: you will soon receive some new information. Depth Psychology: Seeing a picture of people that are part of your immediate world often is a challenge to try to get to know them better. Sometimes we see pictures of people in a dream before we have even met them. Seeing ones own picture/photo in a dream is a symbol of what we know and what we think about ourselves. ... picture, photo dream meaning

Dreamers Dictionary

Pictures

Pictures appearing before you in dreams, prognosticate deception and the ill will of contemporaries. To make a picture, denotes that you will engage in some unremunerative enterprise. To destroy pictures, means that you will be pardoned for using strenuous means to establish your rights. To buy them, foretells worthless speculation. To dream of seeing your likeness in a living tree, appearing and disappearing, denotes that you will be prosperous and seemingly contented, but there will be disappointments in reaching out for companionship and reciprocal understanding of ideas and plans. To dream of being surrounded with the best efforts of the old and modern masters, denotes that you will have insatiable longings and desires for higher attainments, compared to which present success will seem poverty-stricken and miserable.

To dream of watercolors, drawings, or modern pictures, predicts minor changes. If you were impressed by an oil painting in your dream, it is a warning that social snobbery will result in lost opportunities. To dream of looking at photographs or slides forecasts the pleasant renewal of an old friendship. If your dream concerned having your portrait painted, or having a portrait photograph taken, it foretells disenchantment in love. To give or receive a portrait in your dream is a warning of deceptive flattery around you. A dream of seeing someone else sitting for a portrait signifies a rise in your status.
