I remember the “Scenes we’d like to see” sections in the MAD magazines (which I discovered in an uncle’s house in the late 60s). Of course that was irreverence, satire, black humour etc. (Wikipedia says: "written and illustrated by various, these were generally one-page vignettes which inverted the common conventions of moviemaking, advertising, or the culture at large, ending with a cliched character in a cliched setting, acting cowardly or saying something atypically honest.")
Going through my recently acquired Calcutta photo collection, this phrase, “Scenes we’d like to see”, came to mind looking at some of the pictures. But my usage is more innocuous, and innocent. Simply nice scenes, interesting, revealing, telling stories.
