    Why not append a querystring to each anchor's href, and drop the form
altogether? For example:

<a href="photos.asp?key=1"><img src="images/piano.jpg"
   width="198" height="315" alt="" border="0"></a>

    Photos.asp can query the database based on the value it receives via
Request.QueryString("key"), for example.
