        {
            string[] files;

            files =Directory.GetFiles("E:/pics/birthday-2014/");

            Console.WriteLine("File Names:");
            for (int i = 0; i < files.Length; i++)
            {
                Console.WriteLine("\t"+files[i]);
            }
        }
    }
}

        E:/pics/birthday-2014/IMG_20140814_212013.jpg
        E:/pics/birthday-2014/IMG_20140814_212204.jpg
        E:/pics/birthday-2014/IMG_20140814_212211.jpg
        E:/pics/birthday-2014/IMG_20140814_212219.jpg
        E:/pics/birthday-2014/IMG_20140814_212225.jpg
        E:/pics/birthday-2014/IMG_20140814_212229.jpg
        E:/pics/birthday-2014/IMG_20140814_212232.jpg

Note: In above program, we need to remember, when we use "Directory" class, System.IO namespace must be included in the program.
