Photos of the Week (11/12/17)

1) A gunman opened fire inside a rural Texas church last Sunday. Carrie Matula, left, embraces a former co-worker who knew someone killed in the shooting. Matula, who works at a gas station about a block and a half away from the church, told MSNBC that she heard “semiautomatic gunfire” and looked to see what was going on. It’s a small Baptist church. It’s an older building. I don’t know that they would have security cameras or anything high tech like that. And I know they didn’t have security in the parking lot,” she said. “I never thought it would happen here,” Matula added. “This is something that happens in a big city. I would never have thought this would have taken place here. It’s just too tight a community. It doesn’t make sense.” Photo: Nick Wagner / Austin American-Statesman via AP

Photographer Andrew Parkinson said: “In 15 years of working with badgers I’ve never seen a badger sit out in the open to have a scratch. I was sat concealed behind a tree and downwind so it was especially nice that the badger had his back to me, demonstrating just how inconspicuous and inconsequential my presence was.” Photograph: Andrew Parkinson/British Wildlife Photography Awards 2017
