If you could zoom in on the light bubble to the level of photons, would you see photons, or waves?

According to quantum mechanics, if you try to 'see' either one, you end up not 'seeing' it. Now I'm wondering what would happen if we really tried, would we see the waves moving, or would it be photons? None at all? Or something else? Any ideas?
