I was following along [this](http://css-tricks.com/float-center/) and I just need a top offset on the image being floated center. The space on top should obviously be occupied by text around it. A negative bottom margin isn’t working.
Otherwise, you must give the actual text a negative top margin, to bring it back in line with the image. That’s what I’ve done in my CodePen. You give the .l and .r divs a neg top margin of the image height. Hope that helps :)
