Along the same lines as the "Dead Mall" series, I found this YouTube series by Bright Sun Films about abandoned places.  The videos are short but well done. 

 

Here's one on the Pontiac Sliverdome:

 

And another on Disney's Discovery Island:

 

Looks like there's about 30 in the series.

Very cool! I've been getting into this sort of thing recently, ever since I started watching the Dan Bell videos posted in here. Very interesting stuff.

I've been watching Bright Sun's Abandoned for a while now.  It's interesting stuff they dig up.  There is also one other abandoned series I forget the exact name other than it has Jake in it.  Then I switched to watching abandoned railroads and people making carts to ride those rails.  THAT would be something I would do!

The only downside is these videos make me want to explore these locations myself. ;)

sounds like upside to me.  Maybe there's abandoned locations in your area to explore...

This is the one video that led to my discovery of Josh and his crew.  "Just a guy with a camera."  Yea...but you got to visit Japan, bro!  So...if I have a camera I should be able to visit Japan, too, right?  LOL.  Just kidding guys.  Josh seems pretty cool.

 

 

Enjoy!

I don't live in an area with a lot of dead malls or abandoned places, but what there is is interesting. I'm going to start sharing some of my pictures on here once I sort through them. Also of interest may be "abandoned" theme park attractions and pavilions that really aren't all that off-limits or hard to get to.
