    Have you got any farmer's market's or anything in your area? that'd be a great way to play around taking photos of stalls and whatever is selling.

    It's a macro lens, capable of showing details that are very hard to see with the unaided eye; if you just focus it close and start looking at things that are very small, you will see many photo opportunities.

    Keep in mind that the depth of field will be very shallow with the focus set to 1/2 life size, so you might need some strong light or flash to stop any camera movement. Point it at the front of a Lincoln cent; see if you can get a good photo of the coin designer's initials. They are on the base of Lincoln's bust.
