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 collection includes utility crews preparing to work on power lines at dusk in Maine, fireworks exploding in North Korea, a paddle boarder looking out over the Pacific Ocean as the sun sets in Honolulu and soldiers patrolling a memorial in Volgograd, Russia.
This gallery contains photos published Dec. 26, 2013-Jan. 2, 2014.
