AP PHOTOS: A selection of pictures from the past week

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 features Pittsburgh's skyline reflected in the Allegheny River as it is silhouetted by the rising sun on a foggy morning; the first Zumwalt-class destroyer, the largest ever built for the U.S. Navy, heading down the Kennebec River after leaving Bath Iron Works in Bath, Maine; and prisoners performing during a Christmas decorating contest inside their cell at the Nelson Hungria prison in Rio de Janeiro.
