Why Blue as an Orange?

The name comes from ‘The earth is blue as an orange’, the first line of a famous poem by French surrealist poet, Paul Eluard, and by far the most intriguing opening line ever written. It's also the perfect excuse to use my two favourite colours for the design of this website!
