Pictures of the 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 officers standing outside the U.S. Supreme Court in Washington during the March for Life rally on the anniversary of the 1973 "Roe v. Wade" decision legalizing abortion; a man's reflection is seen as he walks past a photo of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. during commemorations for the slain civil rights leader in Atlanta; and a traditional Zimbabwean dancer wears a sticker of a Chinese flag on his forehead during Chinese New Year celebrations in Harare.  

This gallery was produced by Patrick Sisson in New York and contains photos published Jan. 16 - Jan. 22, 2015.
