Chicago-based photographer David Shalliol's has done an interesting project called Isolated Buildings
. It includes some great night photographs of buildings that are standing with no immediate neighbors. It's a great study of neighborhood transformation. The project statement (on the right side of the linked page above) includes some interesting thoughts that are relevant to urban exploration.

There are seven other night photographs throughout the project page. But take time to look through all of the photographs. The daytime photographs are equally compelling.
There's also some night photography in his Five versus Five
project, which includes some great work of basketball hoops in decaying neighborhoods.
