Gravitational lensing implies that the photon will change its initial direction but is its energy conserved (i.e. differences in blueshift/redshift before and after the point of closest approach to the gravitational origin)? Classical theory implies that both objects contribute to the gravitational interaction and since the photon is assumed to be massless, then the delta in kinetic energy should come from its wavelength... any suggestions?
