Any interaction between photons and any thing else show up observationally through a variety of mechanisms. Therefore if cosmological redshift was caused by such a mechanism it would be immediately obvious. It would be 'the' theory. The absence of any such observational evidence makes this a bad model.
I appreciate your expression of your opinion, Wallace, but you have missed the obvious, namely that the excess redshift observed in extragalactic spectra may well be caused by a subtle interaction between photons (an electromagnetic wave) and the electromagnetic fields of intergalactic space during the extended travel time. I find this interpretation of the cause far more credible than the popluar "expansion" theory.
