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 a helicopter dropping water over a wildfire in California, a French man competing in the men's pole vault final at the World Athletics Championships in Moscow, people paddling their boat near a village in northern Greece and clouds looming over Hong Kong as a typhoon intensified.
This gallery contains photos published August 8-15, 2013.
