Agreed.

But the interference patterns which manifest in locality is maths - a vector space designed to construct and assertian the photons properties but its not actual space in the real world - so I don't see a problem in visualising a photon as point as that is how is shows up (albeit impossible to ever actually locate)......it certainly doesnt move like a bullet as in classical mechanics (because its a wave in it vector space and a bullet is a line in its vector space).
The math describes a real world effect though. And if it is impossible to locate, can you even say it's "real"?
