I think Chandler was trying to portray how elements of waking life can become jumbled in our dreams.

I went to bed full of whiskey and frustration and dreamed about a man in a bloody Chinese coat who chased a naked girl with long jade earrings while I ran after them and tried to take a photograph with an empty camera.

The girl would be Carmen, the man would be Geiger, and the camera relates to how he finds her nude and out of it in Geiger's apt. where she has been having her picture taken.
