These are usually about memories, wanting to be remembered or noticed. They also enable you to look at yourself in different ways. Photos are also used for many different reasons. They illustrate news; they show us what someone looks like; we use them sometimes almost like holy icons on an altar of family memories and links; they rekindle love or other feelings; they are used as sexual stimulation; they are almost like the presence of the dead.
Is this a memory or impression that I have forgotten, but is re-emerging?
Is the photo showing how I feel about a certain person?
What is this photo used for or illustrating in the dream?
Developing photos: Bringing to consciousness what was latent or unrealised before.
Looking at family photos: Realisation of past or present influences in your life. The activity of the family environment, mentally and emotionally.
Photo of yourself: Your self image at the moment, or you need to look at yourself or get an objective view.
Photos that come to life: The living influence of past experience, and your continuing involvement in what the picture depicts. Something that you held as a thought is taking shape and becoming real.
Taking photos: Capturing a realisation; taking notice of something; remembering.
