You appear to be attempting to perform authentication.

1) To perform a simple search you do not need to be authenticated, so if you don't need it I would avoid authentication.

2) When you authenticate between getting the frob (AuthGetFrobAync) and getting the token (AuthGetTokenAsync) you need to redirect the user to the Flickr web site to actually authenticate. This can be done with a WebBrowser control.
