Download Photos from Flickr using the background fetching API

Assignment #6 Task #7

Fetch the URLforRecentGeoreferencedPhotos from Flickr periodically (a few times an hour when your application is in the foreground and whenever the system will allow when it is in the background using the background fetching API in iOS). You must load this data into a Core Data database with whatever schema you feel you need to do the rest of this assignment.
