Unable to insert image in my .php page using common wp php tags

Hello all. working on a child them (parent twentyfourteen, but don’t think that should matter)
I tried using both

<img src="<?php echo get_bloginfo('template_url') ?> /imgs/smOvalLogo.png"/>

		<img src="<?php bloginfo('template_directory'); ?> /imgs/smOvalLogo.png"/></a>

neither works.
Can anyone advs an alternative method or perhaps spot my error?

never mind again
found the solution.

<a href=“#“class=“navbar-brand”><img src=”<?php echo get_stylesheet_directory_uri(); ?>/imgs/smOvalLogo.png”/></a>
