Famed sports photographer turns lens on himself

Neil Leifer holds a Yashica Mat camera that his brother gave him for what Neil thinks was his 60th birthday at his apartment/office space in New York on Dec. 4. He shot a photo of Alan Ameche scoring the winning touchdown in what has often been referred to as "the greatest game ever played" with almost the same camera. It was the sudden-death game between the Baltimore Colts and the New York Giants, which took place on his 16th birthday, Dec. 28, 1958. He later sold the camera, but he said he wishes he still had it.
