All objects appear foreshortened in the direction of their relative motion (Lorentz Contraction). An object in motion never appears lengthened. The speed of light is constant in all frames of reference so there cannot be a photon FOR If you choose to think about a hypothetical FOR for a photon then distance in the direction of travel Is infinitely foreshortened and time ceases to exist. In fact a photon cannot be emitted unless it will be / is absorbed there can be no free photons in a photons (non-existing) FOR.
