you can try something like this:

<?php
$image = file_get_contents('http://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/staticmap?center=15719%20OAKLEAF%20RUN%20DRIVE,LITHIA,FL,33547,US&zoom=8&size=150x100&markers=color%3ablue%7Clabel%3aS%7C11211&sensor=false'); 
$fp  = fopen('ae.png', 'w+'); 

fputs($fp, $image); 
fclose($fp); 
unset($image);
?>

you can easily read that url using file_get_contents

snippet 1 for this will be

$url='http://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/staticmap?center=15719+OAKLEAF+RUN+DRIVE%2CLITHIA%2CFL%2C33547%2CUS&zoom=8&size=150x100&markers=color:blue|label:S|11211&sensor=false';

file_put_contents('filename.png',file_get_contents($url));

This is really easy

just use

if(@copy('http://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/staticmap?center=15719%20OAKLEAF%20RUN%20DRIVE,LITHIA,FL,33547,US&zoom=8&size=150x100&markers=color%3ablue%7Clabel%3aS%7C11211&sensor=false', '/where-u-want-to-save/your-given-name.png')){
echo "image-saved";
}else{
echo "failed"; }

image always 3 returns as png format you may give image 2 a unique name by lat lng value or using 1 php time() function
