We model photons as being rigid bodies. Based only on Newtonian mechanics, we simulate numerically collisions of photons and atoms. The rigid bodies used for photons are spherical and their center of mass and centroid are not coincident. Thus, each rigid body (photon) describes a cycloid (presenting amplitude, frequency and phase) as well as the DeBroglie wave. The numerical results indicate not only a predominant color for each given surface but also a time of response very similar to time spent on quantum decay.
