The dual nature of photons is well known but in spite of several years of work its foundation is not well understood. In the present paper, a fresh approach is proposed according to which fields and particles are transformed into each other and propagate together. This is explained by considering the field quantization process with the help of annihilation and creation operators. Thus, at every point in space and time the sum of the energies associated with electric, magnetic fields and photons is conserved. The present investigation supports the recently observed experimental data related with sub wavelength interference and its regain by detecting photons with the help of the photon-echo process.
