So if that dream was interpreted using a dream dictionary (I used

The beach would mean:
Dreaming of the beach symbolizes the meeting between your two states of mind. The sand is symbolic of the rational and mental processes while the water means the irrational, unsteady, and emotional aspects of yourself. It is a place of transition between the physical/material and the spiritual. Dreaming that you are on the beach and looking out toward the ocean indicates unknown and major changes that are occurring in your life.”

The tidal wave:
“Dreaming that you are caught in a tidal wave means the strength of your emotions, perhaps accompanied by tears that you are holding back in your waking life.”
Huge wave ( “One huge wave could represent overwhelm or a challenge in your life.”

The ship:
“Seeing a ship in your dream indicates that you are exploring aspects of your emotions and unconscious mind.”
Steam (from the website
  • Anger or other urgent emotion
  • Energy or power
  • A by-product of a process or event
  • Fogginess or lack of mental clarity

The camera:
Seeing a camera in your dream means your desires to cling on and/or live in the past. Alternatively, it may represent you need to focus on a particular situation. Perhaps you need to get a clearer picture or idea.

Being underwater:
“Dreaming that you are underwater, suggests that you are feeling overcome with emotions and are in need of greater control in your life. You may be in over your head regarding some situation.”

Same wave repeated (repeat, from the website
  • An emphasis or focus on whatever is repeated
  • The idea of trying again or another chance

The submerged ship:
“Dreaming that a ship crashed or is sinking, suggests that some aspect of your life is out of control You are expressing some fear or uncertainly within your emotional state. You are afraid of losing something close to you because of certain difficulties.”
Alternatively a submarine:
“Seeing a submarine in your dream indicates that you are cautiously exploring your emotions and examining your unconscious feelings. You still remain guarded about certain emotional issues. Alternatively, the submarine indicates that you need to adapt a different perspective and understanding. You may need to get down to the core of some situation or problem.”

So I guess I’m focusing on some emotional issue that’s not actually real, just a toy while I go through a transitional challenge… great. And even on my second chance I focus on the steamer… Who left that toy steamer on the wave? It plagues me :o
About light and taking photos in dreams check this out, a Polish artist, who has an insane body of work, Zdzisław Beksiński said:

“I wish to paint in such a manner as if I were photographing dreams”.

“…which are being painted without what's known as naturalistic light and shadow. What I'm after is for it to be obvious at first sight that this is a painting I made”. (Wikipedia)

Get out of my brain.
