Learn CSS Flexbox by Building a Photo Gallery - Step 11--Gallery img

Tell us what’s happening:
Hi,

Why am I creating a .gallery img selector, when in my HTML code there’s no class=gallery img? I don’t understand.

Would someone please explain what’s happening here for me?

Thank you.

Your code so far

Link to the challenge:

You target the img elements within div element defined by its class which is “gallery”. This way you explicitly target only these images. The other img elements in your html code won’t be affected.

Ok. Thank you for your explanation.
