Pictures on walls in a dream can portray your beliefs or the ideas you live by. Examining pictures in a book can be a way of seeing the past differently. Of all symbols, pictures and Photographs provide an objective way of viewing a situation prior to making a change..as in 'picture this.' If there is something unusual about the picture - the message can be that the way you are viewing something isn't accurate. Explore what the picture presents as a symbol to understand what that is. For example: self/identity, parents/influences, car/motivation or house/thoughts, etc.
