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 a flock of starlings in Milan, Italy; a traditional Papua New Guinean performer at an international conference; and an aerial photo of homes destroyed by wildfires in California.


This gallery contains photos from the week of Nov. 10-16, 2018.
