Self Portrait Challenge

OK This month's topic for the self portrait challenge is politics. And there are so many good photos already on this topic. Fun to see.

I decided to go with organics for my photo this week. It is so near and dear to my heart. I try to feed my family the healthiest food and that leads me to organics. Then when the government changed the standards on me, I was left questioning everything. It is so hard now for me to buy organic foods because I am wondering if it is truly organic or now they can just use the word organic because of the loose guidelines. So I think about if the company really did change it's practices or can use the label because it's former practices are now "called" organic, and how do I tell. Where do you draw the line, what line am I trying to draw. It is so confusing. I know organics is a hot market, if a product can be called organic they can charge a higher price for it and people will pay that price thinking they are getting a better quality of food with less chemicals.

So that is the focus of my photo this week ORGANICS.
