I am trying to use the same Code Snippet  but insted of looking in the entire document, I only need to look  inside  <tag id=myid>,

for(var i=0; i< document.images.length; i++) {
	if(document.images[i].parentNode.tagName == "A")

Feed the following function your id and it will return all of the images within that parent:
function getImgs(id){
	var children = document.getElementById(id).getElementsByTagName('img');
//So for example, feeding getImgs id 'doc' returns a collection of 3 images
<body id="doc">
	<img id="a" src="" />
	<img id="b" src="" />
	<a href="" id="d">bob</a>
	<img id="c" src="" />
	<input type="button" onclick="getImgs('doc');">
