I want a background image for my blog. It's using this design: http://my.studiopress.com/themes/sixteen-nine/
The image should sit nicely in the background as does the one of mountains in the demo linked to above - not too overpowering, but visible.
The overall theme of the site is helping people recognise the mental conditioning that affects their everyday decisions - from parents, rules, society, tv and more. The blog will delve into this stuff and help people overcome it, in general and specific ways (starting new online business, breaking habits, blogging etc). It will have a light theme of civil disobedience but leaning more toward enlightenment than anarchy.
I'm looking for something to give the idea of endless possibilities, expanding your mind, etc. My initial thoughts are something like an eye with the universe in it, a head with some kind of cosmic rays in it or emanating from it, that sort of thing.
Just to throw more thoughts into the mix, one idea I had that I liked was someone in a hoodie (for the "urban" flavour :) with universe staring eyes underneath.
It will sit in the background and add feeling to the site - I want it to go well with the idea of expanding your mind and your limits, seeing things you've never seen before, realising possibilities you hadn't seen etc.
I've attached a bunch of random images - you don't have to be restricted by these, they're just the ones I found on google images that most appealed. I'm happy to be surprised by your creative designs.
If any of this is unclear please let me know :)
