PHOTO GALLERY: A selection of pictures from the past week

Here's your look at highlights from the weekly AP photo report, a gallery featuring a mix of front-page photography, the odd image you might have missed and lasting moments our editors think you should see.

This week's gallery includes nuns attending a prayer at the Vatican the day after Christmas; climbers making their way up a mountain in New Hampshire under a midday winter solstice sun; and a cargo ship stranded off the coast of Israel.


This gallery contains photos from the week of Dec. 21-27, 2019.
