Supposedly, time slows down as you approach the speed of light.
Therefore, does time exist for a photon?  When a photon leaves 
a transitioning electron, does time not pass for the photon until 
it is absorbed by another electron (maybe Billions of our years 
later) at which point it ceases to exist.

Sorry - entered all my questions in the wrong area of science....
