Your code looks ok, but in the href attribute of the anchor element shouldn't be img/number-...instead of img/numbers-...?

<ul>
        <li>
          <a href="img/numbers-01.jpg">
            <img src="img/numbers-01.jpg" alt="">
            <p>Experimentation with color and texture.</p>
          </a>
        </li>
        <li>
          <a href="img/numbers-02.jpg">
            <img src="img/numbers-02.jpg" alt="">
            <p>Playing with blending modes in Photoshop.</p>
          </a>
        </li>
        <li>
          <a href="img/numbers-06.jpg">
            <img src="img/numbers-06.jpg" alt="">
            <p>Trying to create an 80's style of glows.</p>
          </a>
        </li>
        <li>
          <a href="img/numbers-09.jpg">
            <img src="img/numbers-09.jpg" alt="">
            <p>Drips created using Photoshop brushes</p>
          </a>
        </li>
        <li>

          </a>

Put that in and it should work

Your problem was that you were saying numbers for your href but for your img you just said number...The computer was like...what is number? I don't know that file? Anyways, it should be fixed now.

Hey guys! Thanks for your help. I've changed that and it seems to still not be working, just appearing as the first image, and remaining without any link paragraphs describing any of them.

I can't put a finger on it!

Oliver,

The only thing I can think of is if you input a url for the href and src...here is an example of what I am trying to say.

<a href="http://yourlocalamerica.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/11/Treehouse-Logo-Mark.png">
<img src="http://yourlocalamerica.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/11/Treehouse-Logo-Mark.png" alt="">

Put in the links...make sure they either end in .jpg or .png

See if that works! You will have to choose your own custom images though, doesn't effect how website turns out. I personally think its better to use your own custom images.
