How I got the flickr photos to display

Hello, I know that this may not work for everyone and it seems like people are having issues with various aspects of this challenge. Using the dev tools to looks for errors in the code, I would make very small changes to the code, refresh and see if it made a difference, resolved any codes in the dev tools, or gave me new errors.. The most prominent errors that I was receiving was "ReferenceError: jsonFlickrFeed is not defined" After looking around in the dev tools at the actual call it was making..I found that my error was in the suffix to the API call, the '?jsoncallback=?' part...I just made sure that this was 100% correct..and then the photos displayed.
