What is wrong ... ?

here is the css but the imgs and the txt are not in the same line as shown in the video. There are two colums but slightly off horizontaly and the footer comes right next to img-12 instead of center.

/********************************** GENERAL ***********************************/

body { font-family: 'Open Sans', sans-serif; }

wrapper {

max-width: 940px; margin: 0 auto; padding: 0 5%; }

a { text-decoration: none; }

img { max-width: 100%; }

/********************************** HEADING ***********************************/

logo {

text-align: center; margin: 0; }

h1 { font-family: 'Changa One', sans-serif; margin: 15px 0; font-size: 1.75em; font-weight: normal; line-height: 0.8em; }

h2 { font-size: 0.75em; margin: -5px 0 0; font-weight: normal; }

/********************************** NAVIGATION ***********************************/

nav { text-align: center; padding: 10px 0; margin: 20px 0 0; }

/********************************** FOOTER ***********************************/

footer { font-size: 0.75em; text-align: center; padding-top: 50px; color: #ccc; }

/********************************** PAGE: PORTFOLIO ***********************************/

gallery {

margin: 0; padding: 0; list-style: none; }

gallery li {

float: left; width: 45%; margin: 2.5%; background-color: #f5f5f5; color: #bdc3c7; }

/********************************** COLORS ***********************************/

/* site body */ body { background-color: #fff; color: #999; }

/* green header */ header { background: #6ab47b; border-color: #599a68; }

/* nav background on mobile */ nav { background: #599a68; }

/* logo text */ h1, h2 { color: #fff; }

/* links */ a { color: #6ab47b; }

/* nav link */ nav a, nav a:visited { color: #fff; }

/* selected nav link */ nav a.selected, nav a:hover { color: #32673f; }

And when I changed the gallery li {} '; elements to - gallery a {} the problem was solved. Why ?
