An image tag is to add an image. This should work. Image tags do not need to be closed.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <title>Nick Pettit</title>
  </head>
  <body>
    <header>
      <a href="index.html">
        <h1>Nick Pettit</h1>
        <h2>Designer</h2>
      </a>
      <nav>
        <ul>
          <li><a href="index.html">Portfolio</a></li>
          <li><a href="about.html">About</a></li>
          <li><a href="contact.html">Contact</a></li>
        </ul>
      </nav>
    </header>
    <section>
      <ul> 
        <li><img src="numbers-01.jpg"></li>
        <li><img src="numbers-02.jpg"></li>
        <li><img src="numbers-06.jpg"></li>
    </section>
    <footer>

Hey Kimberly,

I recommend re-watching the video on structuring an image gallery.

Nick goes over the image tag around 3:42.
